4x4labs announces the Mercedes-Benz OM617 to GM
We have successfully tested our GM manual
transmission adapter and are ready to do a
pre-production run of 25 units.
At this time we have a 3 part kit to mate a GM
transmission to the engine. This kit consists of -
1. Engine to bellhousing adapter
2. Custom flywheel
3. Pilot bushing adapter
We are taking orders now and have a few
requirements for our pre-run customers. If you
are interested in participating in this
pre-production run we ask that you be ready to
go with your swap so that we can obtain timely
feedback and any observations that you may have
regarding the fitment and installation. We ask
that you be automotive or engineering oriented.
We are also looking for an assortment of
different transmissions so we will be basing our
decisions on that as well.
Our adapters arenít made by anyone else,
anywhere. These adapters do not require any
block or transmission case modifications and use
common off the shelf factory replacement parts.
They are easy to bolt on at home. They are high
quality, and expensive to produce. Well worth
Our target price for the adapter kit is below
$1000. As we get our production ramped up we
will better be able to narrow down the price.
If you are interested in knowing more please see
the diesel conversions section on our new website.
Please keep in mind our website is under
construction. We will be changing things around
and adding the web store so please be patient as
we get our new site organized.
