I'm not too sure on HP. It's a 7.5mm Dieselmeken pump. And a smaller Holset.
I'd guess 200? Maybe 250. I was just aiming for good drivability/early boost/etc.

I just followed what worked with the 6x6 swap.

I'm a sucker for a G and a Mog in the same pic. I want my driveway to look like that some day.

Cool vid. What happened that caused the clutch failure?

Big same. I rebuilt a portal on a u1300 and drove it around a bit and was blown away. They're very tame to drive. I'd love one someday.

Just a weak clutch choice on my part. It was a sprinter 240mm. I figured big weight, should last. I put it through its paces, though.

Haha, there is probably a half dozen or so in town. We're a small shop, but we sort of specialize in the 70 series roof conversions/Turbo diesel swaps/Mild buildouts.

I've started to do more OM swaps for customers. I have 5 or 6 OM605 swaps lined up already. 8-)

It's called Fit Garage. You're welcome to swing by anytime.

Oh cool! A friend of mine just had a pop top put on at Fit Garage last month.
If I didn't already have the Camptop on my G500, I would consider going that route for sure.

I'll definitely stop by on one of my journeys to the mountain this winter.

What is the difference between a pop top and a camptop?

CampTop is the trade name that Schmude uses for their poptop that is designed for LWB Gs.

Gotcha, so it was a reference to using a different brand of poptop. I didn't actually realize anyone else but Schmude made them to fit our rigs.
