A rebuild wouldn't be a bad idea. I'm not all that familiar with diesels but after those miles I doubt the rings are as tight as they were when new. This is, of course, quite a bit of money to put into the car. A turbo would probably help with both power and economy, but again money.

On the cheap? Probably wait for someone else to chime in who owns a small diesel.
