I am a long time fan of the 5 cylinder turbo diesel and have owned three of them.. I have been warned before that the 350 SDL which is a 6 cylinder is a time bomb waiting to go off. I have recently been introduced to the idea of purchasing a 300 E turbo diesel that is in excellent condition. I was extremely excited about the idea untill i saw that it was a 6-cylinder. Is this the same as the 350 motor that is such a maintenece nightmare.
