Hello everyone!! Im thinking about getting a project car, something like a gen 1 vw caddy or a similar old truck with a goal of making it a drift car ( slammed, Widebody, exc.) For the heart of the car I want to use an 3l Mercedes diesel (OM606) throw a turbo and a custom mechanical pump that I found from (dieselpumpuk) trying to achieve 400hp. So I wanted to ask how hard is gonna be to do something like that with that engine and if it's an easier way to get to that power goal without any modern electronics to the car ( I think if you change the pump to a mechanical one then it doesn't need an ECU correct me if I'm wrong) so yeah if anyone can help me please respond or if you have any knowledge about this engine. Thanks in advance
