merc 240d

Postby burnt_servo » Sun Jul 12, 2015 1:34 am

looking at a Mercedes 240d (OM616 engine ). anyone have any experience with them .

I'm wondering if oil squirters can be installed in the block and a om 617 oil pump installed .

the idea is to put a turbo on it and install it into a bronco 2 .

I have an 85 300td with the 617 turbo and have driven 240s. I have no experience adding a turbo to a 616, but from reading I remember you have to do some machine work and swap pistons to accomodate the squirters and the pumps are driven differently so they dont swap over. The 616 and the 617 definitely dont offer the return on efforts that turning up a cummins does. Are you doing anything with the pump? Youll definitely want to monitor egt. You can find pump tweeks at and find write ups of swaps.

My $.02, Id rather deal with making the turbo 617 fit than trying to make a 616 perform like one.
