ok. I have a 1982 240d Mercedez Benz, diesel, manual, and I'm
basically looking for a turbocharger (mostly in e-bay) because the car
is really damn slow.
My problem is I don't really know what turbocharger I'm looking for.
I'm not sure if its compatible with my car, so hope you can help me.
here's some list of turbochargers I got from e-bay and please tell me
which one is compatible with it.
p.s. you could also tell me what site I can go to to help me with this

-IHI RHB5 Turbocharger - REBUILT
-Garrett GT TP38 Turbocharger 1.10 A/R Comp

-IHI Turbo Turbocharger NT Garrett HKS Perfect
-Turbocharger T03 rebuilt for race engine

Adding a turbocharger won;t change your luck. Turbocharging an engine means it
can burn more fuel. Your problem is having someone build an injection pump and
control system that will add more fuel when the turbo adds more air. There is
no practical way to do this.

The 240TD is not a turbocharged diesel, but a t-model (estate) with Diesel
engine. IMHO the only turbocharged engine available for the W123 series was
the 300TD Turbodiesel (in Germany only sold as estate)

Years ago I had a long argument with a guy that put a turbo on a 240D engine and
came in complaining
of oil leaks. I told him that just adding a turbo will only give you more air
and unless you put
some kind of enrichment compensator on the injection pump, you will not gain
anything. His reply:
"This turbo is designed for this engine."
My reply: "That turbo may be designed for that engine but THAT engine was never
designed for a
As far as the oil leaks, I told him that the 300D turbo engine has a different
crank with grooves to
lead the oil away from the front and rear crank seals and the pistons are oil
cooled with squirters,
the turbo pressurizes the crankcase. Even if you put a turbo on a naturally
aspirated 300D, it will
leak oil. Your 240D engine was never designed for a turbo.
His reply? "This turbo is designed for this engine."
"Sir, your engine was never designed for a turbo!"
"This turbo was designed for this engine."
It went back and forth like this a couple more times until I finally told him to
talk to the person
that designed that turbo for his engine.
His parents never should have had children......
Forget about turbo charging a 240D.
It is what it is and if it's too slow sell it and buy a 300D turbo whose
engine was designed for turbo charging, also its transmission was beefed
up for the additional power.
No, there was never ever any 240D Turbo or 240TD Turbo
in the W123 series.

I heard all about the "don't put turbo in 240d" but I'm trying to

Anyways, I also heard that the 300td's turbo could be attached to the
240d. Its just my speculation since it's engine is quite similar to
I'm REALLY a NEWBIE on car stuff so please bare with me. It's really
not my fault why I'm driving a 240d. But if there are any
possibilities that I can make my car go faster (except replacing the
whole engine) like replacing certain parts with better parts, that
would be perfect. Also, if you guys have any sites I could go to that
would help/advice me with this problem. thanx
Simply forget to _tune_ your car -
even if you manage to get an extra 5 hp
(or so) these are not worth the cost/effort,
the car will still be _very_ slow!
I have driven all the European W123 diesel
engines with 55 to 125 PS and amongst them
also different versions like 200D w/55 PS
and 60 PS or 240D w/65 PS and 72 PS -
although in direct comparison you DO feel
the difference the cars are still extremely
to very slow!
The big plus point with the OM 616 is its
simplicity and longevity - but surely NOT
In case you want more power - sell your car
and switch to a W123 300D Turbodiesel.
(And again: A 240DT is NOT existent, there
is only the 240TD - a normal non-turbo
OM 616 engined station wagon)
It always pays to read W123 postings:
In spring 2006 starts the new CL coupe CL 216,
just six months after the new S-Class W221.
This april we will see an C-Class facelift,
the C sportcoupe will also get a 5.5-litre V8
with 388 PS.
In January 2006 the new M-Class ML 63 AMG will
go on sale with 6.3-litre V8 and 476 PS.
The limited-series CLK-DTM race-car will have
a 6.0-litre V8 bi-turbo with 544 PS.
And in 2006 we will see the E63 AMG non-turbo
with a maximum torque of 800 Nm.

How much faster and what cost do you want the 240D to go.....
