diesel swap i'm going to do.

i came across the idea on our yj forum while oddly enfough looking for some info on either finishing up my efi swap or something about the ax-15....

http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f12/3...994-yj-835449/

heres the link to the thread ^^^^

http://mercedesdiesel4x4.com/OM617AdapterKits.aspx

heres the link to the adapter kit ^^^^

http://www.mercedessource.com/

heres a link to many of the wearable items on this engine.^^^^

http://www.4btswaps.com/forum/showth...e-info-I-found

here is a link to engine codes and vechile application. ^^^^

ok so i would like to throw an om617 mercedes diesel engine in my cj7. yes it is somewhat unholy seeing as to how the jeep lineage fought a war against other vechiles with MB powerplants but guess what they now own chysler who owned/owns amc.

all that aside they motor is a 500,000 mile motor with scheduled maintmence and its ok on fuel econ.

the turbo diesel hp and toque leave alil to be desidered but with improvements they can produce as much as a 4.0l stroker.

i find the 4bt is way to expensive off the bat and the same with the 1.9 jetta dti which i wouldn't do but both have a alot of aftermarket parts and what not.

i wasn't convinced the mercedes diesel was worthy but alot of toyota and land rover guys are using this power plat with good trail results just poke around on you tube.. i don't ride as much as i'ld like to but i would want to know i can.


just wanted to put this out there on the cj forum and see what you guys thought. i'm still gonna finsh my obd1 swap but i thought this would give me something to look into
