Default Hello new to Mercedes, and the diesel world.

I have a 236k mileage 91 300D. Was dealer maintained vehicle. I have a few problems with it. Leaking injectors, combustion, and oily sticky stuff coming out of them. Picking up some monarch injectors, new glow plugs. Hoping this will solve the problem. Next is to have the turbo rebuilt due to mileage. Is there any diesel guy from arizona that ran into some issues with their 300D?

Im concern that its tired, i dont hear the turbo whistle till the high rpm range. It has some resistance where the turbine doesnt spin freely. This is comparing to my BW S300SX turbo on my 2JZ.
