Hello

1st thing to look at is the exhaust system, going up 1/2 an inch on diameter will usually help and also ensure the silencers are in good condition and not blocked and ideally replace with the 'straight through' type that relies on a good sized silencer box to dissapate the sound energy

also replace the air filter with a high flow element - K &N or pipercross make good parts

then consider having the injector pump rebuilt to increase the line pressure - as getting more fuel in shoudl really help

I've used this firm in the past for all sorts of diesel pump repairs
