Generally you can get some longevity by keeping the EGTs down.You can install a pryo gauge to monitor the EGTs.
You will find the greatest number of owners who have already done this on IH8MUD diesel forum

I went that way with my 2h in the Troopy and it was a disaster. I couldn't keep it cool no matter what I did and it would not produce the horsepower it should have.
Tried everything and the only conclusion that could be come up with was the head casting on that particular engine had a problem.

A rebuilt 12ht (if you can find one) is the go, it was a great engine, other than that not knowing the kilometres your engine has done I would think a rebuild maybe needed.

As suggested don't over fuel it or screw the boost to high and fit a EGT gauge.

Also this is worth fitting to stop over fuelling, I just copied it from AXT.
In order to achieve the most economical balance between power, economy and smoke emissions, a fuel enrichment aneroid is recommended, which features:
Original equipment design and quality.
Technically correct air/fuel ratio management.
Reduced thermal stress, due to over-fuelling.
Reduced light load fuel consumption.
Reduced full load smoke emissions.

Some say an oil cooler as well although the 2H has it's own oil cooler.

Hope you find the right solution.
