Question Intercooler for Isuzu Diesel ?

I am considering adding an intercooler to my 84 310 which has the turbo-diesel engine. Has anyone any info on whether it would be worth the cost? Or if it is even possible?

It's possible, but the turbo lag may offset the benefit of the cooler air. The cooler air has to go from the turbocharger to the front of the radiator, then back to the air intake, which takes time.
