Hello, Got a diesel engine into a gas Mercedes.

Hello, I am new in the Forum.

My car is a 1989 300E gas Mercedes, to which I installed a Nissan RD28 naturally aspirated diesel. It is a 6 in line, 18 valves, 98.6 hp at 4800 rpm.

It is a very nice engine, soft, quiet, and is yielding about 32 MPG in mean.
Record is over 40 mpg and maximum speed attained is 170km/h at 3500 rpm.

I live in Chile, South America.

My dream is to install a Mercedes OM 651 or OM 612 Common Rail Turbo diesel intercooler in my car.

I am trying to develop a system for real time aspirated mechanic diesel fuel yield monitoring. Will share results with the Forum.

Presumably your emissions regulations are a little less strict than they are here in California. Lucky you!

Good luck to you.

Hi Oldbeaver,
You seem to be a very practical guy.
Don't you expect problems with a very strong common rail turbo diesel in an old chassis? Thinking about propshaft, driveshafts, engine mounting...
Not even mentioning brakes, suspension,...
Or are you planning to adapt all this too?
