Can you adjust the mixture on a 3208 like you would for a carb for the high altitude?

From the looks of it he had better bring a spare windshield with him.

Diesel engines burn fuel with an excess of air-no mixture control. The turbo/ air intake system has to supply enough air for the injected fuel. Atmospheric pressure at sea level is 30 inches of mercury-at 15,000 feet it is 15". Power will be limited by this. On another note-aircraft pilots are required to use supplemental oxygen above 14,500 feet in a non-pressurized airplane. I can definitely feel it at 12,000 feet, particularly at night.

The turbo scavenges air and the governor adjusts fuel to satisfy the need for torque

I think if you flying, anything over 12,500 feet for 1/2 hour must have O2. I would think long and hard before trying that. Is it worth it? Damage to engine, etc...
Coming down in 1st gear will eat a retarder. He will find his weakest link!

Its a gravel road,and does not look all that steep.
I did warn him of breathing issues,i don't think hes a smoker.
Of course he lives in Chile,so he knows more about it than we do.

Article says 4% max grades, that's not too bad. I'd try it if I were them! You only live once.

We have crossed 10,500 in our WB. With a turbo I think he would be fine. I would not do it in a 3208 NA.

One word of advice I would pass on is to have new fuel filters before heading up. It would be a real inconvenience having to change fuel filters out at higher elevations.
