Is it possible to add a Turbocharger to my 1993 W124 250 Diesel?

If it's possible, will it be difficult or easy to install it?

It is possible to add a turbo charger to pretty much any engine.
But consider you would need to source a suitable turbo charger (volume/speed etc)
Build an exhaust manifold and tubing.
Select an appropriate wastegate
Construct an intake manifold
Consider building an intercooler
Design and install oil lines and return for the turbo ensuring sufficient pressure
Select and install new injectors
Then most likely new pistons, rings, bearings and maybe Conrods.
Need to ensure fuel pump delivers sufficient fuel for new injectors.

If you are comfortable with all that then it's easy.

Otherwise not so much

Will I need to install a pump injector? I heard you need to install a pump injector for a RWD, mine's a LWD.

I'm presuming it's a right hand drive W124, Mercedes didn't add a turbo as the steering column is in the place where the turbo would fit...

That would make for a complication for sure!
