That is so true or like someone else said:

She won't win any races but she will run forever

The thing with old NA diesels is simplicity, longevity, durability and sometimes pretty good fuel consumption

You can tune a NA diesel with exhaust, port/polish and injection pump modification, just like any NA gas engines

only injection pump modification is known to yield up to Around 50hp/liter and this is on peugeot, citroen, VAG 1.6(75-80hp) and 1.9 (85-95hp) stock they had 1.6 (54hp) and 1.9 (75hp) but it is costly
