Have we already discussed this? If not why? It seems like all he has really done (engine wise) is bigger turbo and modified pump. Maybe other small things but as far major modifications that seems to be about it.
Would it be that hard to build something remotely close to this?
And by that I mean build it the way we often do... by Modding the pumps ourselves and taking turbos off other vehicles etc.

Ugh nvm. Just read that other thread about these hunks of ***. I will return to my slow 1.6 TD head hung low and filled with shame for considering such a headache.

Too. Hard. Can't hack together with junkyard parts. I hate it.

those OM603 engines make LOTS of power...

none the less, its pretty ***in that they did soo well with a diesel merc..
92 Jetta GLI - Black, 1.6D w/ GT2056V turbo..
86 GTI - 4 Door, Med Twilight Gray, Tow Machine..
86 Audi Coupe GT - Tornado Red, All Stock.. WRECKED.

Turbo: exhaust gasses go into the turbocharger and spin it, witchcraft happens and you go faster.

yup, an oldie but goodie... one of the tracks is in Finland and the other in Latvia (I've been at that track). The long winter nights in northern Europe just lead to endless tinkering in their garages in order to enjoy the nearly endless summer days.

Don, I was e-bay tonite, saw a couple small diesel boat motors. Inboards, but small. I put "diesel engine" into the search. Hope this helps

By the way, what automotive auctions providers do you know? I recently found http://www.carfrom.us automobile auction. I found good pre-owned HONDA CIVIC 2002 . I'm glad that i ran vehicle history check before buying. It had stripped  damage. Be protected and regularly run vin number check before buying.
