I have seen filter "upgrades" or direct replacements but never OEM.

Must try harder!

You wont see the branding all over the place, they supply the high end market as OEM under licence and indeed help with the development of performance brands.
Standard filters are made down to cost to cover many regional variations in emissions and fuel quality. They are as a result a compromise.
Performance filters from respectable manufacturers like K&N that have been in the business for decades really do make a difference......especially as part of a process that involves other efficiency mods.

To be honest i am not a huge fan of K+N's, My background is off road vehicle preparation and I have found that they clog fairly easily in very dusty situations and are a pain to clean in rally / expedition situations. I don't envisage it have to deal with those sort of conditions on the boat. Paper filters are fine, but don't last that well in damp conditions and will need an air box fabricating. The K+N is sitting on my shelf doing nothing and is good for around 300 HP, so should be adequate for my needs.
Anything is better than than the piece of junk that is currently on there.

The pump is an old school Minimec inline and I am told there is a timing mark hidden behind an Allen bolt that should be visible through the hole when the pump is timed to 20 degrees BTDC.

I Put all the rocker assembly back on and set the tappets, a couple were tight, but not excessively.
I have to make an adapter for the dummy injector setup, as it needs a Schroeder valve in line otherwise the gauge doesn't hold the reading. Hopefully get that done tomorrow.

there maybe but it may not be correct the only way to get it spot on is to spill time it, or get the pump off and the timing mark checked at a pump shop.
spill timing is a piece of cake if you have the bit to do it

K&N's generally feck your MAF when the half wit who cleans it over oils it.

Surely the injection pump has an impulse coming from the outlet of the turbo so it knows how much to increase fueling by?

If not its gonna run over fueled at low revs and under at higher boost.

I need a little clarification here, does unburnt fuel make white smoke? or black smoke?

No it doesn't.

Normally unburnt diesel is dark/black.
White or grey is either water vapor or oil. Although oil is usually darker grey and slightly blueish.

Hard to tell what's going on via the internets without pictures or video...
