Can't SEE the picture(s)! Most of the old (617.95X) 300D Turbos' boost was set at about 11 psi.

The Garrett turbo's wastegate CAN be adjusted BUT one needs to remove a coiled spring to access the adjustment. Some owners are very sorry they pulled that spring from its grooves for its nearly impossible to replace while the turbo is on the motor and the motor is in the car.
You may see a bit more power from an adjustment but its a marginal increase. At 16 psi boost the engine's safety features kick in and the fuel supply is reduced.
These turbodiesels made about 40 HP/Liter, good for their time - gas or diesel - so there's not a lot of potential upside to "tuning" these.
And don't put a turbo on a nonturbo engine - unless you want to kill it.

Not to mention the question of boost pressure setting of a turbo in a picture, without reference to anything about the car, engine or lawn mower it's going in seems very strange.

Oh geez, I wouldn't try this on a turbo in the car.

Yeah but on an angine that only has 120hp every little bit counts. Some are set pretty low its been observed. If the turbo is out, asjust it. If it's in the engine it's probably more trouble than it's worth.

There are a number of adjustable regulators available that are fitted to the pressure line going to the waste gate actuator. These can be plumbed so the boost is adjustable from the drivers seat. This might be easier than fiddling with that spring.

*IF* the turbo is off the car it's stupid easy to fiddle with the spring.

Sounds like it's seized. Try penetrating oil and heat.

The above part if for 6 cylinder diesels.
Here's a page which shows the 5 cylinder one:

Looks like it has the flex pipe thing.
You can adjust thw wastgate. They usually comeunder spec fro the factory. Yuo can tighten them down all the way and still perhaps not get it to the full factory spec so most people just tighten them down all the way and call it a day. The overboost protection circuit will be the final arbitor of boost so don't worry.
