What are you doing with it? I am sort of old school - adding something like a turbo has to add stresses to an engine like that. If you don't need it I would be taking it off. That tractor runs right around 100 HP. It was a fairly big tractor in its day (that was not articulated). Most aren't used to their capacity any more because they aren't big enough and lack some of the creature comforts that we like today. That said, I would snatch up a good one in a heartbeat and gladly spend hours running it. They are good tractors.

OK let's clarify a few things here. Adding a turbo in and of itself does not add any stress to the machine. it will still only develop as much power as the load on it requires. even if you put a load on it, you only get (much) more power if you also increase fuel delivery!

No matter how much you increase the fuel, that is the max setting! the pump will only deliver the increased fuel if you put an increased load on it.

if for example you take a stock 806 that is set at 95 HP and put a turbo on, then set at 95 hp again, you will probably end up turning the pump DOWN, have cooler exh temps but still have the same torque at the flywheel at a given load.
