Hi, does anyone know if there is an after market turbo kit available for an OM617.912? Australia is a bit of a black hole when it comes to MB or European cars unless they are late model. It also seems that the prices in the US for parts are also way cheaper than here. As soon as you say you have a Benz prices suddenly get marked up.
Anyway, Turbo manifolds are very rare in Oz. I've never even seen a turbo 300D here but know they exist. I have relatives somewhere in the US that can send me parts but I just don't know where to look. Can any one help? Or give me some ideas.

Come on mate, I know about Ebay. There is not much there and when I find something it is either pick up only or overseas like in the US.
There is no turbo gear floating around in Aussie land which is suitable. I could get manifolds made up but I would expect it to cost an arm and a leg. I wouldn't mind getting a complete turbo motor to rebuild as I can get a set of pistons and sleeves real cheap.
Will an OM603 fit into a 123 chassis easily?
