               Mercedes Om617 5 cylinder kit T

We have redesigned the Mercedes diesel kit. This kit will allow you to bolt on any Chev V8 style automatic transmission or manual transmission. There are many advantages to using a 700R4 over the stock Mercedes transmission. A low first gear ratio, a torque converter with torque multiplication and lock-up, and a variable volume pump really make the diesel perform. 

We also have a kit for the Following Mercedes diesel engines:

OM601 / OM602 / OM603 / OM604 / OM605 / OM606

These 4, 5, and 6 cylinder engines have a common bolt pattern on the block.

Mecedes OM601 thru OM 606 kit This kit is $925.00
