Way cool, but my practical side says "just buy a w210".

WOW.

Doesn't solve all the problems with the W140 diesel models. But it sure knocks out the biggest one! I'm envious too.

Cheers, John

That would be awesome in a 124, especially a wagon. Somebody should do that, takes a mere 10 weeks

Boy, that 606 sure looks dimunitive in the 140's V12-sized engine bay!
I'd still take the 210 turbodiesel over that any day, the only 140 I'd buy would have a V8. Too big of a car for a diesel.

It's interesting though that he used the 3.5L injection pump on the 3.0L 606, to overcome the (turbo) 606's electronic controllers. I say turbo because the N/A 606.910 in the W124 had a mechanically-controlled IP, of course the N/A IP would not adapt well to a turbo engine. I wonder if, with the extra fuel, his engine would produce more power if he used a bigger turbo..
