I wasn`t trying to be critical,I was just wondering why you want the Cali stuff on your 80TD. If MB does replace the turbo, and you later want to remove the Cali manifolds along with the Trap and change it to the federal set up. You might be able to clock the turbo around to work.

Iam pretty sure there is a price difference between the Fed and Cali turbos, so maybe not.

getting rid of the trap will help you price wise if you have to replace the started down the road. Cali starter has the solinoid on the bottom, a one yr thing.

I have been through this with my learning curve on my Cali 85.

As far as I've been able to find, the trap/ox recall applies to OM603s. But it appears Tom didn't reference that.

At this point in time, you could get a turbo cassette ('core section' with all the moving parts balanced) and you or your mechanic remove and replace the housings for similar or LESS COST than a 'really far' tow (unless you have AAA Premium.) ALSO, the turbo you would get from the factory dealer would not be completely new. On a trip to Germany last year, I went looking for some parts for a customer and I could not even source a 100% new or NOS turbo in Stuttgart at the classic sales center! It would be a new cassette on reused housings. Sometimes the compressor could be reused if it is still up to spec. They are allowed to call it 'new' since the bearings, seals and moving parts are mostly new. AND granted, there's peace of mind with a dealer warranted part.

Also --Snag the 82-83 style turbo--that does not have the diaphram housing in the compressor housing ( the little 3 bolt triangle thingee)

I mentioned he might be able to clock it around, if the OP wants tu use it. don`t know how much money he wants to put into this project.

That little vacuum thingee on the 84 & 85 turbo, is an ARV valve as I remember. can be unplugged and capped off. Iam using a pre 84 turbo, and sold my 85 cali turbo for $150.

Source some manifolds from a 78 or 79 W116 300SD, then there is no EGR to block off, and looks much cleaner.
would need the Federal turbo oil line, down pipe, may be able to use the cali starter, or sell it to some one looking for one. they do cost a little more than the fed one.

One thing to remember, the Cali engine does not have the oil return line in the pan for the air filter oil seperator thingee.
