If it is not rusty it should pass inspection, and any fails would need to be addressed anyway so it is good policy. I used to run a 5cyl non turbo diesel van with a mechanical fuel pump, very reliable (tuning can be difficult but worth the challenge). Frankly for me the price is too high, but if it is in very good condition it may be right for you. I have traveled to buy vehicles before, it is impossible to negotiate when you have traveled far, if you want to knock down the price do it in advance, or make it very clear that you will be subtracting the cost of flaws etc.. a manual sprinter would be pretty tough and the fall off in performance due to the older engine tech might be balanced by the manual transmission and reliability of mechanical fuel injection.

I've double checked it is a manual transmission, So pretty excited about that. the guy who is selling is moving back to Germany and is offering to source and send parts back to canada which would be very helpful it that is the case. Probably would still take 3 weeks.

For differences:
AFAIK apart from the engine and trans, the rest of the running gear brakes and suspension should be interchangeable with a CDI T1N. And by "Interchangeable" I mean you could bolt on whole parts on like front hubs and diff, not interchange stuff like brake pads.

The rear doors will have non-bonded windows, and the aforementioned headlights, bonnet and grille. Apart from that I think the body is identical.

The front seat pedestals are different, and front seats as well. No idea if they can be interchanged. And the dashboard and all electronics are different. Electronics are different in terms of there not really being any on the 312d.

So in summary it is a really good reliable option. As long as you keep a supply of the correct spares on hand it would be fine. Things like glowplugs, filters, injectors etc.

Did you guys get the om602 in any MB cars over there? that would be a great source of engine/trans parts.

You guys seem to be the ones to ask my question.

My goal is to change my dually to a single wheel and get better mpg. A knowledge sprinter owner told me he thinks the best way to do this is to get 2500 donner van swap out
- rear differential
- ecu
- ignition and immobilizer
- Possibly the TCM

From what you guys are saying would it just be possible for me to switch the rear axel and the TCM box from a donner 2500?

OR if the ecu needs to be changed could I do this

- Swap out rear axel and TCM from Donner
- Use a green diesel tune with their additional Immobilizer delete package to remove any issues with the immobilizer and ignition switch.
- Swap Ecu from same 2500 donner that I got the ecu

OR even better

- Swap out rear axel and TCM from Donner
- Then maybe Green tune can just flash my ECU to match my new rear axle gear ratio and all is good. I probably get the immobilizer delete option anyways so if the ignition and immobilize won't be an issue regardless. I just want the ability to swap out my ignition switch for a used one if it starts going bad without paying the dealership my life savings.

Any thoughts? How would you guys switch the sprinter from a dually to a single axel? That's the main goal.

A secondary goal, that is not a must, is higher gear ratio for fuel economy since I never ever have a heavy load. So what do you guys recommend?

You should probably start a new thread, also contact GDE about tuning /programming changes.
