Frequently Asked Questions

  • What kind of car will Teemu be driving in 2013?

The 2013 car will be a Mercedes benz w203 aka C class wagon. The engine from the w123 will be mounted in the new car and the w123 will get a new simplified engine. The new car will get a new, same kind of gearbox that was used in the w123. Radiator solution is going to be something like in the w123. Outside then? What will it look like? – You’ll see as soon as we start planning it.

The first thing you could do is checking in regularly for posts about building the new diesel drifting monster.

  • What make and model is the 2012 car?
The will be no new chassi for season 2012, but the old one will be tweaked a lot. In other words, the racecar will be a Mercedes W123 with a OM606 engine equipped with a big holset turbocharger and a Eaton M90 compressor. The gearbox (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mbTVgwshffk) will be the same as in the end of last season. Some adjustments will be made to the steering, chassis and body.
  • Which engine will be installed?
An all new OM606 – Same kind of engine that we’ve used before, with Turbo and compressor

  1. hey good fucking job guys   super work i like it the power of a diesel engine no some much people can feel it anyway can anybody help me i have a opel omega a 2.3 turbo diesel rwd         pls help 

    1. Sorry i don’t understand your question?

      1. i think he wants to know how to uprate his opel omega turbo diesel

    2. Oh about the opel not really shure does it got a inline diesel pump? Basically more diesel more boos will do it how to do that on a opel i dont know 🙂

  2. hello I’m building a similar engine that you have! but it is a om606.910 none turboI replaced the rods to sten Parnes H style! Do you know how much power 26mm piston pin and pistons can take?
    or should I switch to om606.962 turbo pistons and bolt? goal of over 500hp

    1. For over 500 hp i would recommend a compleet turbo engine to start with there is a lot of little things that differs in the turbo and nonturbo but you should at least change the piston an bolt  but i would keep a lookout for a turbo engine.

  3. Hey, I have a Mercedes w124 1989 300 TDT Engine I want too upgrade.
    I want too install a Scania v8 Turbo to it that I have here. 
    I need some help with what kind of parts I need and what I need to change on the engine?
    Were can I buy this Performance parts? 
    Can you help me and mail me?

    Thanks 🙂 

    1. What turbo is it ? I think it will be too big for the om603 at least it won’t be very nice to drive. The things you have to make is a new exhaust manifold and a intercooler. You also have to modify the intake-manifold a bit since the original goes over the engine wich is not very ideal.  The pump has to be uprated, that can be done in som diesel workshop or maybe a truck workshop.  But otherwise there aren’t much you can buy for these engines you have to make almost everything yourself. 

  4. hei guys!
    i have a OM671a, do you have any idea what i can handel with stock intrenal? i really want to upgrade the diesel pump.
    i run original pump and a smal truck turbo, possible a T3/T4 turbo.do you guys have a diesel pump laying in the work shop for this car??

    pease out 😉

    1. About the pump i have to ask Teemu but i don’t think so. The engine can take quite a lot , how long is another issue. I had a om617 with about 300hp and that worked fine so i would imagine the om 617a can take a bit more around 350-400 maybe for some time.

  5. Do you have any plans on going to carnia this summer :)?

    1. Yeah we taught about it but there is one competition in Oslo ann one in Kemora the same weekend. It seems like we are going to Kemora.

  6. I have a w126 and was very interested in your steering, suspension, and rear differential setup. I want to convert to a rack and pinion setup but don’t know which parts to consider.

    1. Im not entirely sure on this one but i think our steering rack is original pinion is from a volvo 740 and the rest is combined of Toyota Aristo and original parts an also a gearbox from the us to make the steering faster.

  7. Hey guys i was wondering i have a U.S. w123 300d with om617 i swapped the turbo to a h1c which is the older version of the hx35, i was wondering if i could buy a pump from teemu to fuel my little project?

    1. Right now we are all kind of hung up with our own projekts but i can ask Teemu if he got one ready otherwise you could contact Mynä-diesel or PP-diesel here in Finland which make really good pumps. 

  8. Hello guys! Thanx for doing 123 famous! Looking forward to see you at gatebil on Rudskogen 13-15 July. I have a 85mod 123 300tdt and i wonder how hard it is to modify a OM606 engine in my car? My plan is to make the car street legal
    Best regards. KF form Norway

  9. Hi Guys. I am looking to buy a W124 300tdt, but I am thinking about getting the OM606 engine. Will this engine fit on the stock gearbox that is in the W124 or do I need a gearbox from the OM606 engine? Will I have to make the engine mounts or can I use the one that is on the OM606? On the OM606, just by modify the pump how mutch HP can I expect? Will the engine be durabel?
    Thanks guys!! 🙂
