    New member, mercedes 190 om606 project

    Hi everyone, I thought I'd join what looks like a sound forum.

    I've been messing about with diesels since I was about 10... I'm building a om606 powered mercedes 190 project in the style of those crazy boys from Finland. KKD motorsport manifold, HX35 and external wastegate are on order along with some 7.5mm elements for my M series pump Click here to enlarge

    Best get some pics up!

    OMG - I've been waiting for one of the crazy Fin's to join this forum with the OM606's. I've been searching for one of them for literally years!! Sound like you are the next best thing!! (I assume your not actually Finnish? sp?)

    Get some pics up.... I will wait with baited breath (so you'd better hurry!!!)

    Nice one! Ive seen your posts on another forum, good to see you here, pics please?! Have a real soft spot for mercs, I watch the superturbo youtube videos almost nightly lol the 190 was some car, like a tank.
    @JP-w210s with the om606 are cheap now, I can get my hands on one now which needs test and a 'little' work for 450, they are around, I'm just not finished completely with the 306 yet!

    Ok, so yep I'm not from Finland... Sleepy rural dorset I'm afraid.

    As it stands at the moment, my 190 is my daily driver. The engine has been run up on the mechanical om603 pump I got for 100 quid off ebay.

    A video:

    That manifold is now in the bin along with the turbo.

    I've got a proper flywheel on it now and have figured out some clutch bits from sachs racing that will just about fit under the bellhousing of the getrag I've got Click here to enlarge

    Last night I got an e-mail from Kalle at KKD motorsport 'your manifold is complete and my holset delivery should be this week' Click here to enlarge All I need now are my 7.5mm elements from my guy in germany...

    In case people haven't seen these, the OM606 manifold from KKD looks like this:

    And whilst I have a TIG set, counting my time and all the parts, I couldn't make that quality of manifold for that kind of money.

    I'm getting a 12cm2 HX35 with the 54mm compressor and 60mm turbine:

    The general opinion is that the 12cm housing is the best on the 606 engine as anything smaller results in too much back pressure. If I go VNT/VGT then I'll be using an HE341VE, again from Holset, but these are difficult to find over here.

    Nice, looks like it'll provide a nice flow to the turbo

    So as my M series bosch pump has no ALDA on the top (it came from a uk spec w124 300d) I need some way of controlling the off-boost smoke.

    So this Bailey dump valve got donated to the cause:

    Half an hour in the lathe and it looks like we're getting somewhere:

    The plan is to rethread the top plate to accept an m10 socket cap screw, make a new piston rod that will seal into the lower steel part (which has a small lip seal inside) and then using a ptfe plug, resin up the dump ports and sleeve the outside with another aluminium tube. I'll then fit an air connection to the underside of the piston.

    Increase boost = rising piston Click here to enlarge

    Very clever!

    What sort of power are you aiming for with this beast then?

    I'd be happy with a hazy 300bhp... Everything I've read tells me the bottom end and valve gear is good for 6000rpm before you need to throw rods and solid lifters in it.

    500nm would be a nice torque figure Click here to enlarge
