I still need to get that checked. Iím going to see if my neighbor (who is a diesel mechanic) can check that out for me. Governing at 53 mph seems pretty low though...

What rpm is your tachometer showing at 53 mph? What transmission do you have?
I have a 2004 6.4 Mercedes and really like it. Mine has 420000 miles and has zero smoke zero leaks.
If yours is pre egr and you really want to get rid of it then let me know.
