gm 5.7 350 Olds Turbo Diesel Station Wagon

Finally One year after its put in we have a video!!!! And 20000 Miles Later. This is what we put the Oldsmobile Turbo Diesel in, a 1988 Buick Estate Wagon. There is Some video of the engine running in the car and the pressure gauge. It runs up to about 7 Psi when we have a load while driving. Pretty nice running car, we have got up to 30MPG on the highway, and just regular daily driving we get an average of about 24MPG, from what my father said.

    Should do a drive by video.
    I was talking with someone who fitted one of these to a range rover recently on youtube.

    i would do a drive by video, but the car is currently off the road due to a bad fitting, these cheap chinese fittings today dont hold up at all anymore.

    That is the Pressure gauge for the turbo… and next to it is the oil temp.

    Awesome setup. I’m building an 84 chevy 4×4. After that I plan to fix up my diesel cutlass. I was going to put my LS1 in the truck but now I am thinking about swapping the diesel to the truck and the ls1 to the car.

    Did I read somewhere that you had 6.2 fuel parts on it?

    Nice i might think about building one from a 72 cutlass or something like that would be unusual and kinda cool.

    I dont know how I missed this vid, that is bad ass! Should have left the tunes on too, lol! Was trying ot figure out that song, grreat job!

    Yeah took the parts out of a 6.2 pump, the 6.2\6.5 so that there was more fuel to the injectors. But the poppet injectors get over loaded with the higher fuel volume.

    For andye250- The oil pressure is fine on the motor, there is no gauge in the car just the oil and water temp gauge, and the boost gauge.

    Nice Oldsmobile Turbo Diesel Wagon, maybe someday, you should think about running it on waste vegetable oil or possibly make it around 200,000 or 300,000 on it. Keep it up! 🙂

    30 mpg in a diesel aint much, Look at some euro’s in the same year. for example Mercedes. Diesel kings.

    The 300D’s of those years got 23-25 mpg Hwy, and that is with a 3.0 vs. Olds 5.7. The 300D also weighed a 1/4 ton less. You could buy a Diesel Olds 98 Regency Brougham AND a Diesel Chevy El Camino for the same price as one 300D.

    Thats pretty cool that u took a olds diesel engine and shoved it in a buick wagon like that……and man thats some pretty impressive mileage all things considered….24mpg is pretty good I think for a big wagon like that 🙂

    i didnt know they made a 5.7 deisel

    It’s backed with an 200-4R? Bit of advice: A friend had this trans stock in his GN, and after even just a few bolt-on mods it needed rebuilding. In fact, it was rebuilt twice… The second time with Art Carr kevlar clutches & bands, and hasn’t failed him since. Not to mention that after the second rebuild, it shifted so hard it barked the tires & got sideways under light-throttle@low-speed on the way home! Also: Got an intercooler? Add one & you’ll see a difference!

    Turbo on a 5.7 Olds diesel ? Must have ARP studs I would guess.

    Same Olds 350 engine used in Chevrolet, Oldsmobile, Buick, Cadillacs by GM in the late 70’s and early 80’s. Also a V6 Diesel was available

    Would you ever do a vid of you driving it please.
    How is the power after a rebuild and custom turbo install compared to it without a turbo. Im mean was it totally worth it, just like ok, or less than satifying to you guys .
    Just curious about this thats all.

    ac works too? do you know what kind of HP you are pushing after the rebuild and turbo mod?
