None. The 2.9 can be built into a faster engine than a 4.0. The four liter is for towing a john boat. The 2.9 is for going fast on European roads.

Only issue is that Ford Cologne engines are a b*astard to build and tune.

I have three Mercedes Benz OM926 trucks and a International DT466 standing in my way.

Wanna help with a turbo issue on a Benz diesel?? SOB has a 6" factory pipe feeding the compressor side of the turbo.

Its f*cking fun. Trust me. ?

We’ve only got 1 OM926... I don’t have to deal with them much. Dt466s, I deal with them everyday... what’s the issue?
