    ive just spent the last year rebuilding mine.

    here is a quick list of things to check

    -compression with injectiors unplugged should be 140psi. any variation will be bad news (learnt the hard way)
    -check that your intercooler is pressure tight - mine wasnt and leaked badly. my turbo died, probibly cos if this
    -check the oil tank seals are ok (pressure test)
    disconnect the breather hose to air box - a must.
    - run really good oil (4T) i run 20-50 Motul 300v

    their will be loads more to check. ill keep thinking.
