    Hello! i totaly love my om603 turbo engine and i have now going 56k miles. And i want to do a total restoration to make sure the engine dont break donw and destroy the engineblock so its is imposible to restor it when the damage is already done.
    And i have think about maybe change the dieselpump elements to 7mm so i can get ~400hp :devil:

    Here in sweden the price for the parts for the engine restoration 2900£ And i know that it is alot cheaper in the US or in germany. But i have problems to find online stores who sell these parts. Maybe some one here have a god site?

    Not much point doing anything to such a low milage engine, it's not like anything will be worn.

    If it "aint" broke dont fix it!
    Can see a whole heap of unnecessary trouble and expense for such a project.

    Hi - and welcome to the forum .

    Like the others , I think it will be good for a long while yet . Just service it correctly and it will run on and on .

    If it does go wrong , the best place in the UK is Crewe Engines .

    Post up some pictures of your cars , please !

    The engine must be dismanbled. It is full of tiny grains of sand in the engine since it stood in the same room as a sandblaster (not sure that it is the right translation) have found a website in the states that sell everything except the pistons.

    Pictures will come
