200tdi turbo

Sorry if this has been covered I didn't see it.

I have a stock Defender 200tdi (high mount turbo) swapped

in my 1991 ex-FFR 110. I think I might have starved the turbo of oil. Its suddenly making a noise under boost. Its not an air leak.

If I have to replace the turbo are there any options other than the stock one?

Can I add a little more boost without making any other changes?

I replaced my high mount turbo with a VG turbo along with a Grimm boost control; lots of highway miles at 15 psi or so and have not lifted the head...yet. The set up quenched my thirst for a 2.8 Cummins replacement.
What brand/specs did you go with?
Turbo from Allisport, Discovery and Range Rover 200 Tdi VGT turbocharger - AlliSport they are a reseller, probably can find the same model local.
Boost controller: Manual Boost Controller
I did this upgrade 3 years ago, still very pleased.
