Default Modifying Traeger to increase BTU

Hi, I'm a noob on this forum, but I love the subject matter!

I have a Traeger Lil Tex Elite that I absolutely love. However, in typical man-fashion, I want to make it better.

Specifically, I want to increase the BTU to get temps over 500f (heck, I'd be happy with over 450).

I noticed that Traeger website has a "deluxe" grill with a 3600 BTU output with the same 418 in2 grill space, so I know it can be done.

My hypothesis is that I can either increase the auger speed, or increase the airflow (probably both). Anyone have any experience with this?
