Lack of facts got sand in your vag? Still waiting to hear how the timing being off can make your diesel run "rich". You haven't contributed any useful data or advice to this thread.

Yes. The injection pump in the 3.4's begins the fuel taper at 4100 RPM and cuts fuel at 4500 RPM. It's a less rev-happy engine and you notice that. It's all about that low-down torque. Final...

Come drive in Texas sometime. My well-tuned 560SEL is pretty slow for some of this traffic and it's like a rocketship in warp-drive compared to even a turbodiesel. The N/A's are SLOW.

I don't see how any 7.75mm pump tuned in any capacity would EVER work with the stock turbo. It was barely adequate for the stock pump.

As mentioned above, it's the rack position sensor. It is solely used for EGR control. If your EGR is blocked off (and it should be on these engines), the rack position sensor is entirely pointless.
