...I've been pondering this mod for my 300 td too. If you type "intercooler" into an E-bay search, you'll return hundreds of potential options. Right now, I'm thinking a Porsche 930 turbo intercooler might do the trick. They're approximately the same engine displacement and should be adaptable to a side-mount application, stuffed into lower right front fender-well. The plumbing will be...uh, interesting, but doable. I disabled the EGR system and removed the airflow meter, which provides much more room to work with the potential inlet/outlet plumbing.

If someone can figure out how to make a front-mount IC work, please let me know, as the plumbing would be much easier to deal with (I think). Where does MB put the IC on the latemodel E300 turbodiesels?

Well, the plumbing can't be any worse than the EXO skeleton on the rock rig. Thinks looks like a plumber on acid did it, tubes everywhere.

The 606 tdi runs the intercooler in the lower half of the front bumper and a intake with the air intake on the bottem.
