No smoke no poke lol


I have recently bought a DEFENDER with a Disco 200tdi conversion, very powerfull compared to any other defender or 200 I have drove but bellowed black soot out all the time when accelerating and if I laboured it, the smoke was that bad I couldn't see cars behind turns out it had one of those boost pins fitted, so I have removed it and replaced it with a standard pin now its a totally different vehicle it doesn't smoke even under load there is nothing I had a friend follow me and said if there was it was minimal and he could hardly see it but It does feel really slow now as if the turbo seems a little lazy? it has a boost guage fitted and with the boost pin it would hit 15psi in seconds now it struggles to hit 15psi more like 0.8psi but in 5th or 4th when speeds up it will go to 13psi is this underfueling should I be concerned?

You are now in a typical 200tdi...boost pins Rock. Try it again with boost pin and retard the star wheel a few clicks

There is also a nylon washer that you can which will help, but you need to file it down before using it

The stock pin has different profiles depending on how you installed it. Which setting did you use?
