Default Decided to build my own diesels (pic heavy)

Donnors are Mercedes 320 CDI 6 inline

Ingredients :
Engine :



Turbos :


Stand alone ECU :



Wiring :


Custom manifolds :




Engine stripped :



Exhausts :











First fit :



started the intake manifold :







If interested I'll keep updating the post.

Powergoal = 400 HP (half the weight of a Chevy BB)
Max 6000 RPM
Turbo's are watercooled VGT from garrett & can make 230HP a piece.
I have found a genius who is doing the programming.
The ECU is develloped here in Belgium.

I am putting 2 of them in one off my boats (raffshore F1) with Bravo 1 XZ & imco lowers

Awesome project. Have always wondered about doing this and why more people have not especially in an offshore application where a gas motor is so highly loaded and for so long while never being designed for it.
Great stuff. Thinking outside the box!
