I been really busy with a new job and haven't been working on it but about to get going again I'm going to build another manifold exhaust and try a he221w turbo. With the hx 30 I can just barely get 30 psi and think I need around 40 and this turbo Is good for 39 so I've been told. That turbo is boosting extremely fast on 4bt so I'm hopping it will do the same on 606.Any progress at all?
Ya I do, I have a 151R Toyota version that I have set up it does make it a bit longer with Toyota X box but had Marlin do his majic on it and he had guaranteed 1000 hp and a bunch of torque so at my set up it should be ok, ax15 is vertually the same with a longer input shaft and larger input bearing which I have converted to. I consider it a great way to go. I am sure there will be some opinions as to this set up but this is how I am going to roll.Looks like bendy sens is making an ax15 to om606adapter soon. ? Anyone have thoughts about this vs the nv4500 in a 40series?
I am sure he is, also he is doing a bunch of good stuff with the 150 the v-6 version of the 151R I was told just as strong and will take the AX15 input shaft. He also built one of those for me and I put the gear driven T case on the back of it, however it needs an adapter to mate up.Is marlin still making the 4.30 or 5.19 first gears for the r151?
Good afternoon, I'm working on the same swap on a jeep TJ, what about the oil sump clearance?, could you show some pictures?, thanks.I am doing a similar conversion in a Jeep Cherokee for a customer. Using the Om 606 and GM 700R4 transmission with the Bendtsens adapter. I find that when the transmission oil pan is level to the ground the engine valve cover and oil pan is not. The engine should sit at about a 15 degree angle and appears to be only about 8 degrees. Do you have this problem.
I also welcome questions from DIY. Enclosed are some pics of a Jeep JK I just finished with the OM 606 engine.
