I am new here and this forum is so great!

Are the times for the Detroit gone? I was planning a swap to a Detroit. But what am I reading here! Doing a mercedes swap is no big thing anymore.
What do you guys think? There is a om 904 la that shall be the the best engine in the world. And it shall make double of mpg than a Detroit with more power ...

Thanks

You have access to a OM904? What did they come in?

Factory rating on 4-53N is 140 HP @ 2800, 282 lb ft @ 1700 . 4-53T pre silver was 170 HP @ 2500, about 400 lb ft @ 1700 . I've run both in my '70 GMC 7000 lb. 2WD since 1984 . Works for me !
