2.5 diesel upgrades?

I currently have a 1988 d 110 with a 2.5 turbo diesel. I live in Colorado and often run at high elevation.. 8- 10 thousand above sea level. What types of things can be done to this engine to regain some performance? Exhaust? bigger turbo? larger cylinders?

This engine has 150 k miles and runs well. Just a bit underpowered for this elevation as it exists now.

A 200tdi. I love the 2.5NA but really no good way to get more power out of that awesome little engine.

If you love diesel there is an active FB group dedicated to using the Cummings 5.9.
