Got a question for the experts. If I put a turbo on this engine how do I add to add more fuel since more air will be going in? Will the normal fuel injection pump be enough?

Bigger injectors would be required. The factory pump would be ok up to a certain HP level. I would check with a shop that deals with diesel fuel systems to see what they would recommend

What year of Perkins is this? It maybe as simple as turning the pump up and increasing injector volume . But when the name Perkins comes up I think farm tractor not truck.
