Hi Pete,

Just one question from me:

How does the engine life span get affected because of the box? Will it increase/decrease the engine life span significantly?

Cheers,

@EVO6 - How an earth did your Mercedes manage a 8.1x second 0 - 100 kph run? How accurate was the timing? Any other modifications?

Cheers,
According to PSI the life span of your engine will change only if you are really using the extra power all the time which is actually not possible in day to day life. Like if you have modified your engine for more power and are using the car on the track only running full throttle mode 99% of the time then you can get a reduced lifespan. We are talking about normal turbo diesel cars here that are mostly used for A to B transport and we feel you should not have any significant difference in the life span of the engine. Just a more happier, comfortable and smoother ride.
HAVE FUN

Absolutely mindboggling, EVO. You have yourself an RS killer! So, theoretically the C220 could manage a better time with the powerbox - being lighter and a 6 speed manual?

Diesels rock

GTO,
Definitely the C is going to be much faster ... We can try it when we do testing just let me know when .. infact you have a Gtech Pro meter rite? we can use that too when doing testing ...
As a matter a fact the MERC engines are already broken in when they get assembled in the car... Since Bajaj Tempo assembles the engine they break in all engines before delivery to DCIL ... I know this coz the owner of Tempo is a Good Friend ..

TI,
You shud shift base to Maharashtra .. U missing out on all the action ..

Cheers
EVO

Dont be so shocked my friend.... They have been doing it since DCIL ever came into India ... Tempo got the contract since they were already using a Benz engine for their traveller ...

Also "Tempo" is a trademark registered to daimler crysler.
If i remember correctly, the tempo traveler uses a 3L merc diesel engine.
Can it be plonked in a car?

I know Tempo had a tie up with MB for their engines, but I had no clue they assembled the engines for the cars as well. I thought the engines were brought in as complete units?

DaimlerChrysler is the original owner of the Tempo brandname. Daimler Chrysler had signed a technical collaboration with Bajaj Tempo in 2003, to provide technology for common rail diesel engine. Bajaj Tempo is still an important supplier to DaimlerChrysler India, for the requirements of Mercedes engines in India.

The engine that Tempo builds is the OM616 used in the Trax and Traveller.

Not sure if they are assembling the C220 engine, but in the future the same engine will be used in the Tempo and
Trax replacing the OM616 after its fully indigenized.
