I'll offer up something that will blend the truck and the family car. Chevy/GMC Astro conversion van with the M-B diesel, turbocharged of course, hopped up A/C and a waste oil fueling system.

Rering and reseal the motor, do the timing chain and tensioners, maybe a valvejob, Swaintech coat the pistons with their Savercoat.

Add a freshened junkyard turbo, like an old TO3

An intercooler from a Volvo turbo car or whatever will fit.

Turn up the pump ever so slightly................

Go for 100 hp at the tire with the aircon on full tilt.
Volvo WIA42 VED-12 / 335 hp / 1300 ft/lbs / 9 mpg
