currently- my car keeps up with traffic in 4th gear at 1000rpm(30-40kmph) and pulls from there without fuss all the way to 120-140

If we can get roll on timings in 4th from 40-140 with the bigger filter and pete's box in setting 1, we could possibly settle this dispute.
Will a bigger filter help to reduce or stop the smoke issue at high revv's as well?

To some extent it does help reduce the smoke. but will not eliminate the problem. because the smoke is partly due to the stock exhaust treatment system not being able to keep up(source-tbhp)

Dont think so. The smoke is dealt with by a chemical/physical treatment of some sort. I dont think an aftermarket solution will help. also, an aftermarket exhaust for a turbo diesel will be very difficult. dont know of any that are easily available for the 1.3 ddis
