1968 Charger with a Mercedes OM606 Inline-Six

Luke Dale and his team at Diesel Pump UK continue work on “Vin Diesel” 1968 Dodge Charger project. The Charger is powered by a Mercedes 3.0 L OM606 diesel inline-six and BorgWarner 9180 turbocharger. The transmission will be a full manual Gearstar Pro 4l85E transmission. Since our previous update the team installed the engine, cooling system, fuel system, finished fabricating the exhaust manifold, and started upgrading the differential.

    The OM606 is a dead end, there is nothing more left to get out of it. The OM648 is the future now they are becoming cheap.
