Engine modifications are (at least) much bigger turbocharger, cooler,
selfmade intake manifold and very hard modified fuel injection pump.
Exhaust manifold and camsafts are original. Also engine block, pistons,
crankshaft and cross-rods are original. It looks like mercedes original
turbodiesel engine is very heavy made :). Final drive is the weakest link...
Here in finland they call these +400hp mercedes diesels as "superturbos" :)
There aren't any site in english about these tuned turbodiesels but here
are couple of links to videos and pictures about the superturbo's:
