W124 250TD OM602 Superturbodiesel build
Hello everyone! After a few years of having too little time off, and realizing that I will never have the time to finish my 560SEL superturbodiesel dute to it's corroded body, I have decided to implant its go fast bits into another rustfree merc. So I searched for one with the same engine (OM602.96X) and found this (oh how badly I wanted a rustfree old merc!) '94 250TD turbodiesel estate with just over 220K km on it's dash. In february it will get registered, and then I can start bolting on the followings from my old projectcar:
-Injection pump with 75L3 dieselmeken elements and outside adjustable alda
-W210 E270 CDI 6 speed manual transmission
-Sprinter dual mass flywheel, pressure plate and clutch
-Custom intake manifold made out of a N/A OM602 manifold
-76mm intercooler piping and 600x300x100 intercooler
-Holset HX40W with 16cm^3 exhaust housing
-Big oil cooler
-Custom tubular stainless exhaust manifold,
and so on. So for the moment the only thing I did was to bolt my AMG Aero monoblock I wheels on it, and gave it a good clean. Because of the emmission tests I cannot tune it until it gets registered. The car also needs the following:
-Front suspension/steering needs some refreshement (feels like some loose front wheels in the steering wheel)
-Water temp gauge sometimes jumps off the scale, probably bad contact somewhere
-Outside temperature gauge constantly shows more than 40 degrees celsius although there's big snow outside
-Bumpers need replacing, and a few more small details.

So stay tuned, the goal is to finish it in a few weeks after it past the inspections during it's registration. Here is a cold start video made in -5 degrees celsius, with a weak battery and the car not being started for a few days.

Thank you! For the moment it has the stock cable driven speedo as it still has the original box, but I will put in the electronic unit from the w126 for the 6 speed box.
