What do you wanna know from graphs. You hit 350ft bl of torgue. Id definately say its a pd150
Just if everything looks ok, like is it boosting when it should, as much as it should etc

Looks alright to me. But ive not got another 150pd to compare the graphs to.
Specified inlet pressure and actual are very close together wich would say the engine is doing what itshould be.
It tails off and picks back up but im guessing thats when changing gear or haveing to slow down

Yeh had to slow down a lot (and change gear a fair bit) as I don't know of a long enough quiet road to test on :(

You need to do one constant run in 4th gear and just graph that

On the face of it things look ok but just post constant runs from 1500rpm to the redline (or as close as possible) and only that; makes it easier to read! :)

If you can't do it in 4th gear then 3rd will be fine

And take the torque figure with a pinch of salt; standard they are approx 250lbs ft

Still impressive for a oldish diesel.

Settled its Def a 150 though
