EuroRash, that was a pretty long post with some useful information. But, we are talking about a diesel engine here, and I've a feeling you forgot it as you were writing your post.

To put it plainly, these IAT and whatnot modifications are JUNK. All the explanations and renamings of electrical components (simple resistors magically become Timing Advance Resistors) in the world will not generate more power out of any motor. You HAVE to get more air in there to accomplish that.
That is just false. There is something called maximum brake torque timing for any engine. Plus, in a diesel you can just dump more fuel in to make more power, it'll start to smoke, EGT will get high, but it'll still make a lot more power past the smoke limit.
