Rather get your car to someone that knows how to properly setup and adjust a diesel - over-fueling will also cause overheating!

For a start, also have a decent freeflow exhaust installed, minimum 63mm.

If you are a diesel fan, raise your hand.
If you aren't raising your hand, raise your standards!

A 4x4 is merely a machine that enables you to get stuck further away from civilization.
