    Hi I am thinking of fitting 2 om606 engines to my boat, are these engines all mechanical or is there some electronics fitted.
    I need an engine that gives 170bhp so this one in turbo form fits the bill if there are electronics can they be modified.
    And does anybody now there physical size ie length x width x hight
    Thanks
    Regards Kevin

    If Im right earlier engines, early-mid 90s are available as mechanical ie traditional ignition key and mechanical injection pump linkages

    Later models have electronic control IR Ignition/ecu/injection pump and I believe ignition and ecu will have to be matched

    Depends what your application is, how simple/easy to repair you want to keep it ,I would lean towards the mechanical route myself, you can also get 175HP out of the OM 605 5 cylinder engine quite easily with very little modification

    Give somewhere like Dronsfields a call theyll know what years and specs

    Intrigued by Yorkshire's comment regarding boosting OM605 performance. Is this without oil cooled pistons and turbocharging? If so I'm interested. Any more info, links etc please?

    i think it will be the OM605 turbodiesel he is referring to with 150BHP as standard

    turbo

    Yes as turbopete said, I didnt clarify sorry, it is the turbo engine, if you want details of mods available for these engines look on the Superturbodiesel site all different manner of combinations giving approaching 500HP!!

    now 2 500bhp motors in a boat would be superb! Funny as hell if its in say a fishing boat!

    With you now. I'm familiar with the Scandinavian guys who make those things fly. Won't be happening with my N/A one though.....
