MB 3.0 CRD compatiabilty with VM Motori 3.0 CRD
With the manufactures changing from MB to VM Motori are any of the parts interchangeable?
the pictures I've seen of the VM looks quite different from the Mercedes version. I suspect only the displacement is the same. maybe even the bolt pattern for the transmission is different.
2008 WK "S" Limited bright metallic silver exterior, light graystone interior, 5 speed W5J400 transmission, June 18/2008 build, C213RE rear differential with 3.73 axle ratio, C200FE front differential with 3.73 axle ratio, 245/60R18 Goodyear Fortera tires (stock summer tires), NV245 transfer case, GT2056V turbo, 3.0L CRD (OM642.980)
They would have nothing in common completely different OEMs. Any attempt to swap parts across would require fabrication. It's like trying to use parts from a Chrysler v8 and a Ford v8 or a Chevy v8. Same configuration but different engines, chassis's, transmissions, computers, etc.
