      If you don't have an intercooler on the car, I would keep the boost to around 10psi. Does it have an EGT gauge? If not, I would get one installed. Its important to watch EGTs with a turbo'd diesel...

      If the CEL is on, it needs to be scanned for codes. It could very well give you a good indication of whats wrong.

      The biggest thing is maintenance. Knowing when the timing belt has been done last is the most important thing (and also who it was done by, what all was replaced, etc.). They can go 400,000 miles...
