Bought OM606 at pick n pull. Build?

So I got a good deal on an OM606.962 with 722.6 at the local pick and pull. Injection pump was gone so thereís that, but I have a spare OM603.971 pump that came with my S350...

What would be the preferred method to up the power? 7.5 elements? Adjustments due to different max RPM? Any sort of turbo upgrade needed or preferred?

Iíve done a lot of research. Just want some opinions.


Iím going to keep this engine on my test stand (pallet), and if my 603.971 kicks the bucket, Iíll swap the pan, sump, and oil filter and drop it in.

May I ask how much did you pay for the engine and transmission ?
