om603 and om606
Hi, I am just visiting, I am normally on the gwagen forum, but I think you guys should know the answer to this question.
Are the om603 and om606 engines the same, except for their different heads? So can a 606 slot into a 603 engine bay without too much grief.
I live in Ireland and have a om617 non turbo Gwagen. I need more go and I know that later Gwagens had om603's but I am not sure as to whether an om606 would fit. Om606 engines would be easier to find here than turbo 617s

RE: om603 and om606
Sure Are Same Engines.
Heads Different - 606 - 4 valves per cylinder
603 - 2 valves per cylinder.
Everything you can do with Mercedes.
You are talking about Turbo or normal Engine?
606 have big pipe intake manifold & you need new Air Filter housing.
606 are perfect if you can use on modern way with good lubricants (Synthetic Oils.)

OM603.97: '90-'92 350 SDL (126) '92-'95 350SD/300SD* (140)
OM606.910: '95 E300D (124)
OM606.912: '96-'97 E300D (210)
OM606.962: '98-'99 E300D (210)
* I probably have the years and nomenclature a little mixed up, but you should avoid the OM603.97 engine, anyway.

I've posted a thread that I'll be updating periodically with my project to install an OM606.962 in my S124. There are a number of differences between the engines and I'll be enumerating those in that thread. It is NOT a simple matter of plug n' play for this swap.
