New Diesels and Old Trucks ...

 I posted this on the G Class Forum and thought I would give it a try here too ... Thanks!

 

New Diesels and Old Trucks



 

In a number of threads the concept of installing a new (Bluetech) diesel in various Gs has arisen. Most often the difficulties in concept that is mentioned seems to be the electronics, not the fit ... So here are several questions I have not found answers too in research elsewhere:

  • In a new diesel with a manual transmision how much electronic information does the transmission send to engine management?
  • In a new MB diesel like a 270/280 CDI how much engine management is there that would have to be transplanted if one could source the engine?
If these questions are too complex to answer here, then at least a nod in the correct direction would be grand ...

Drew,

Good questions. Don't you think it would be better to go Cummins than it would be to go Benz? I would try out a 4BT cummins engine. www.4btswaps.com These are tough and cheap diesels.

I think I can speak for Drew here, 750 lbs of rattling vibrating Iron, does not compare to a mercedes diesel. Although 4BT's are a good choice for a 1/2 ton truck or van.

The newer Cummins aren't all that rock and roll clatter.
