Mercedes G-Wagon conversion service.
Replace the sluggish NA diesel motor in your 300GD, 240GD, or 280GE model W460-Chassis Gelandewagen for a much more powerful OM617 Turbo-Diesel.
This listing is for 35 hours of shop labor at our standard shop rate of $105/hour. This is the estimated time needed for removing your old motor, and installing a 617.951/952 turbo-diesel engine into your W460 Diesel G-Wagen. Actual time and cost will vary depending on the condition of your vehicle, as sometimes work to the rest of the drivetrain is also needed.
We sell a High Performance Rebuilt OM617 Turbo-Diesel Motor that is an excellent candidate for this swap.
In addition to the motor itself, additional expected costs are for fluids, filters, motor mounts, radiator upgrade, engine support arms, and exhaust system conversion. These costs vary from about $2000 to $3000, depending on the vehicle.
We can also do this same 617A swap on W463-Chassis G-Wagen models, though there may be a slight amount of additional labor for custom adaptations.
