well, my friend has an 85, longbox, turbodiesel, pickup. Thinking about gas conversion, or diesel rebuild. Diesel has really bad power and blows lots of blue, 1 liter of oil every tank of gas, Oh anyone know power output of the diesel. 2.4l turbo.

Your freind should go and have his shot turbocharger rebuilt......... no power and high oil consumption(burning it) can be a symptom of this....... of course a proper diesel compression check first (to make sure it wasn't a piece of exhaust valve that went through the turbo and took it out.....

Basically I would have a diesel compression check done....... the reason I mentioned the valves is that I have seen a Turbo truck that had a piece of valve go through the turbo vanes. screwing up the impeller and causing the seal to leak oil into the intake manifold...
A compression check would tell you if the cylinder sealing (rings) is still OK...
A leakdown check would also work for this.

I have heard that the stock 2LT turbo was basically a piece of junk and had some design flaws? Anyone know anything about this?

Also are there any upgrades like a bigger cam etc that can dish out some more HP in the L series motors?

ok... i dont really know much about diesels, so a compression check takes a special tool right.??

A diesel engine has a much higher compresion ratio than a Gas engine. you need a special compression checking gage set and adapters to tap into the cylinder through the glowplug thread.
(no sparkplugs=special adapters)
Any garage that works on small diesels should have the tool for this... getting it done and finding out the condition of the rings and cylinders will at least give you an idea of where to start.....
