To reduce lag on the beast you could reduce the boost pipes in length, or even clean the inside of the pipes, they may be clogged up with oil.

If your after more power then i would suggest removing the govener, modifing the fuelling pin in the diesel pump to allow max fuel, fit a manually controlled boost controller, fit a bigger diameter downpipe mated to a free flow exhaust system. Cool

To be honest with you i just made all that up. But im sure some of it may fix your problem?! Laughing

in a short answer to your question.... No due to the nature of it being an old crap pile, it must be scrapped! lol!
