First post, so.... hello!
Hi all my name is Martyn but most people call me whitey. I am very interested in om60x engines due to their phenomenal strength and feel I really need to own one so I am here to pick up as much information as possible and hopefully contribute too eventually. Thanks for now!

Yeah I know all 3l are automatic but some 2.5l are manual so thats my aim and then tune that or get the 3l onto the manual box! :-)

RE: First post, so.... hello!
Well if it doesn't fall through then I have bought a 325 tds estate from the ebay. Hopefully to pick up on Saturday morning. It already has an endtuning eeprom chip running approximately 175 bhp but obviously that's not enough. Now should I go ahead with bigger pump turbo clutch etc on this engine aim for 300 or 400 hp or attempt om606 conversion considering I have limited tooling. I do like the om606 idea but I also like things that are not too far out of reach. Suggestions tips pointers etc are greatly appreciated!
