|The Literature corner offers books and technical
documentation for any Unimog.|
|Please use our Unimog Buyer's guide in
inspecting your new toy or tool.|
|Our Unimog Parts-Hotline can become handy when you're messing
with engines and transmissions, etc...|
|In the 404-S Workshop we will talk about our hands-on
experience with these veterans.|
|Our 406/416 Performance Workshop talks about
plans and actions with the newer (turbo) Diesel models.|
|In the Engine-Swap section you will find answers to the
everlasting question : "How to heal the 404 from Power-Anorexia"
|The Diesel talk is targeted for the OM352-stock-performance
dissatisfied Unimog friend and comes with some hands on tips and tricks to squeeze a bit
more power out of the naturally aspirated 5.7l engine.|
|Our Turbo-Power-Secrets are for the serious Unimog
power-demand friend. The stock OM352 with a slightly adjusted injection-pump will carry
you up a 45 degree slope in 2nd gear. If that's not enough, just sit down and listen !!!|
There is more engine specific information available at the Engine-Swap-Corner.
404-S Radio-Truck : Will be converted into a fine Cross-Country Camper. The search for
a more powerful engine candidate will be handled in 3 stages. Unfortunately it's going to
take a few months to experiment ourselves through all these stages. At the end of each
individual stage we might be able to offer the tested Power Plant to an interested buyer.
We will however inform You online about all of the kinks and details we encounter. As the
result we will be able to offer a very detailed and handy engine improvement guide.
There are also plans to take a real close look at the 411/404 transmission and maybe we
can come up with some small improvements. We are sorry for the delays, but we have regular
work next to our Unimogs too.
Stage 1 : M180 high-compression cylinder-head with dual
(compression ratio 9.5 : 1)
est. time 2 month [April 98] (part time only, we have the head, but not the time right
Stage 2 : M130 motor. We have 2 in stock and will select one of them
for the trial.
est. time 3 month [July 98] (part time only, we would like to overhaul a tranny at the
same time, synch, bearings, etc...).
Stage 3 : OM617 Turbo diesel. One motor already in stock for the test
run (German conversion kit).
est. time 3 month [??? 98]. We have the KIT here now and hope for a timeslot
to play with it (pictures soon).
We are in the process of arranging a few CrewCabs and the appropriate PowerPlants for
them. The Turbo-Power is dedicated to explore the hopefully safe
limits of 170 - 200 hp installed in a 406 / 416. Please be patient, it's not an easy task
to shoehorn the OM352, plus the TURBO and a possible intercooler into the, from the
factory provided space.
As an easy fix, and to improve the power characteristics of the naturally aspirated OM352,
we have our Diesel-Talk to offer.
