my 85 is really fast great acceleration.


all though my 83 is a turtle not even kidding. i was thinking it be a nice birthday gift for my dad since the 83 is his but i mainly drive my 85. the 83 is in a way mine but my dad bought it new but didnt maintain it cause the diesel shop that worked on benzes went out of business in 1995. so after that it pretty much got all gooked up and with my ideas i want this thing to rippp and he will be happy.

Agreed, you may want to have your current injectors tested to determine/justify any money "investment".

No blow off valve. The wastegate is adjustable. There's a procedure for that written up in an old thread somewhere.

The mileage seems low for the injectors to be bad. After you do your fuel filters, valve adjustment, and a diesel purge, if you still suspect your injectors you should pull them and have them tested.

You should do the valve adjustment anyway if it's been over 15,000 miles since it was done last.

Other than the turbo which I can barely hear, I've never noticed anything whistle in my 300 before, during, or after shifts.

A valve adjustment should be done every 15K weather you notice any problems or not.

You shouldn't be able to hear the turbo at all, if you can you have a bad air filter seal or a turbo problem.

Funny you should mention this. I saw someone who had a Nissan Diesel and he swore by putting a little Methamphetamine into the fuel tank! Corse he also repainted his truck with a brush!
