Re: Just got a new toy
LOL ....no kidding anything 'can' fit, and you know what I've done to my rig. 8^D
I wasnt looking to lead someone new to mogs into massive work liek teh 5 cylinder 300TD conversion.
so, I'll rephrase it: the 2.8 straight 6 SOHC dual 2bbl mercedes will fit with a minimum of work that any reasonable DIY type can manage.
2 parts to the process
a) cut a hole in floorpan, build new coveplate that screws down over the hole, and is shaped to clear the twin carbs
B) rig exhaust Y pipe up
the FI models will require re-locating the passenger seat to the cargo area, as the manifold is 18" wide.
