What you'll want to do, though, is to be sure the glow plugs are changed out regularly. They have a tendency to get stuck and require major machine work to extract in that series engine. There's quite a few threads about that issue over at the "other" place--search under OM606 glow plug stuck, or something like that.

Thanks, Z. I've been out of town for a few days and am catching-up.

After I posted this thread I spoke to one of my brothers (has a bi-turbo RX-7) and he gave me the dunce-class in intercooler-ology: Small words & short sentences.

The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and that’s what I intend to reverse.
