To all you diesel w126'ers!

I'm just wondering how bullet-proof these engines are... i've heard stories about the om615 (i think?) engines...

I'd also like to know what types of turbo applications you can fit on that engine to make more power...

thanks! :thumbsup:

since the stock turbo setups were non intercooled, those that turned up the boost like it sat saw problems in the near future--however there were some that added intercoolers---- search youtube for boost mercedes diesel--the finns tend to hop these euro injector pumps up to some ungodly level but never in the w126 or the OM engines do this

the older ones with a million miles eventually throw a rod when unmaintained(if you can hear it over the regular clacking)
