Yes, and burying your foot in the pedal doesn't necessarily result in acceleration. I find that backing my foot off the pedal some finds more power, but I may still have some tuning to do.

Land Rovers don't accelerate. They simply gain momentum.

The third thing we found yesterday that was slowing down this particular 200TDI is one of the original nylon lines had a small pin hole that was not leaking because it was higher than the tank, but drawing in air.
We installed a sedimenter and a 12V fuel pump that exposed the leak that began dripping after the 12V fuel pump was pumping.
Now it will do 140 KPH.
With a Garman running this is just under 80 MPH, so the spedo is reading about 7 to 8 MPH higher, because 140 KPH = 86.992 MPH.

Pretty remarkable for a 200TDI that was a dog to drive that had an exhaust manifold leak, air inlet hose that was closing off the airflow and a pin hole that was contributing to fuel starvation.

Something is not quite right, if that is happening.

I should invest in a MityVac and just pressure test everything on the truck. From fuel tank pickup forward

What pumps do you use? And where exactly do you put them?

Depends on Transfer box ratio and rear diff ratio.

Keep in mind that the post also explains the spedo is reading 6 to 7 mph too high so that the top speed is about 79 MPH or about 130 KPH. Not bad though for a vehicle that 5 days ago struggled to stay close to 65.

We locate a sedimenter close to the tank, then a 12V Fuel pump, then the fuel goes to the engine lift pump, then the fuel filter, and then the IP.
Return line joins with the injector spill over and goes straight back to the tank.
We use the small green diesel Mr. Gasket 12V fuel pumps available at any auto supply.
This configuration also gives you a self bleeding fuel system.

I drove my 200tdi 110 from NoVA to deep creek lake MD yesterday, and was quite happy with how it went. Cruised happily at 65 on the highway, and reached 80(via GPS on a flat), and the big big hills would bring me down to 55 on the highway.

I don't believe the pump has been tuned, the diaphragm screws look unmolested, and the rear screw on the pump still has the tamper proof wire on it.

Since I haven't installed the EGT probe yet I'm scared to get on it for too long. Would a stock TDI reach dangerous EGTs? Coolant sat at 180-185 while cruising and down to 160 on downhills.

Stock 200TDI, boost set at 15 psi, fueling increased to give 720 C maximum EGT. 1.22 t. case, 51A LT77, 32" tires. Probably a bit more in it, but there was traffic.

I don't think I've ever seen that in my 300tdi 90.
I've been almost 80 downhill but this is at 5500ft.
Going 70+ in these with a a surrey top reminds me of a motorcycle. The pavement and all its glory is right there haha.

This is at 4000 feet. I don't think I notice any power loss with altitude.

I just installed a boost gauge. 12psi is stock?
