I have an OM617 5cylinder 3.0 turbodiesel from an 82 300sd going into an 81 Ford Courier. This particular model is good for 123hp, and about 180ft/lbs of torque, but I want more. I plan on installing a mechanically controlled variable vane turbo, intercooler, and having some work done to the injection pump as well to get about 175hp and 220-230ft/lbs out of it. Since most of the increases in power over the production of this engine were due to camshaft changes, I'm thinking a modified cam profile will help a bit towards this goal. Do you guys have a profile that can help with this?

Welcome and we would have to get that camshaft in shop to have it spec'ed out, and would need to know piston to valve clearance also before we grind.

I'll have to see if I can track down a second one. I can't really spare mine right now, but I know there are engines and heads available.
