I totally agree with The Don. True, the 6 speed was never offered with a diesel, but it is possible to bolt it up to a 60X series engine using all MB parts. Also, the mechanical pumps from the 603 will work on the 606 engines, but you are getting in pretty deep at that point.

My 602 Turbo has about 240,000 miles, and it is still very strong, showing no signs of giving up any time soon.

Any of these MB into Jag conversions will involve some complexity.

Perhaps the more straightforward option is to buy a '92 or '93 300D 2.5T complete car. If well cared for, these are very fine automobiles.
