Om 617.95?

Can anyone tell me which Mercedes Benz cars were fitted with the 5 cylinder, 2.9 ltr Turbo charged engine. I have a left hand drive motorhome with the 2.4ltr non-turbo and would like more power. Have been told the OM617 engine is the best but is that correct? Are the 6 cylinder turbo engines (300TD I think) OK? Pointers welcomed. This is a UK enquiry and I know that we don't have the turbo options that left hand drive variants have so am struggling to find a scrapper with a turbo and more power because of the turbo/steering column layout. Thanks for any information. Phil (Birmingham UK)
