those ancient M-B diesels = 120HP @ 4,350 rpm & ... 170 ! lb-ft at 2,400 rpm ! no lack of torque here. ('84 300 turbodiesel)

and as for smoking ?
check for worn/out of spec injector mozzles ,
injection pump timing ,
linkage adjustment ,
oil leaking turbocharger ,
EGR system malfunction ,

"" diesels? W124 diesels don't seem to huff smoke like those older W123 diesels and other older MB dielsels.""

"" Today's diesels put out massive torque and have fantastic fuel economy
