    hi,
    after experimenting last year with the c250td drift car, i decided to spend a bit more time and build a proper one this time. this time i will use a cleaner w202 shell and the 6 cylinder 0m606 from the e300td. this time i will use a m112 eaton supercharger and a hx52 or hx55 turbo, the last effort with the 5 cylinder made 385bhp,(on red diesel) with a standard exhaust manifold that was modified, this was restrictive.
    Here is some pics of my progress.
    after a wee look around the yard to see what back end i was going to use, work started.

    IIRC D-Mac had a steering quickener on the Saturn Sky he drove in FD USA. He praised it on one of the videos while talking about the car.

    the holset likes the boost, lol.
    in a diesel like this, more diesel=more boost, because i don't run a wastegate.
    if i fitted this turbo with standard injector pump i would only see just over 1 bar boost.
    engine is standard,
