Nice write up. the 80amp is an improvement over the 65amp.

there were quite a few threads on using the 115amp bosch AL-129-X that is used on the Saab`s. I think 87 thru early 90`s. don`t see much talk about it any more.

It is a little larger that the 65amp, but fits right in there, and uses the stock "V" belts after swaping pullys. made new wiring harness with larger wire.

there were three HP ratings on the OM616...

1) Not much power
2) Even less power
3) Not nearly enough power!! 240D w/auto

Anyone that thinks a 240D is slow drives too fast.

80 240D Naturally Exasperated, 4-Spd 388k DD 150mph spedo 3:58 Diff

We are advised to NOT judge ALL Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics, but we are encouraged to judge ALL gun owners by the actions of a few lunatics. Funny how that works
