We have 606 engine in W210.
Is there an easy way to tweak it to only 300 HP?

You need a mechanical IP with 8.5mm elements and a slightly bigger turbo.
If that is not enough next is a better flowing exhaust starting from header.

Just so im not misunderstanding. that engine is pumping out that power with stock internals. And from the looks of it, reliable?
That would be fun to drop into a SDL

I don't know much about the om606, but that's impressive to me.
Ive always loved that vid.
Just my MB's:
