    Default Volvo TGB 1314 6x6 Expedition Camper

    Hello

    I bought this Volvo TGB 1314 6x6 almost 5 years ago. but really first got started with the transformation now, from military vehicle to a Expedition Camper! Will try to post some more pictures later on, as build is going forward. Mercedes Benz OM606.910 engine with 6-speed gearbox are 50% ready. And a emty alcove glassfiber body, is ready for the last parts.

    Tom

    Very cool project - interested to see it progress. The challenge on these has been getting enough cooling via the small radiator location - don't go cheap on the radiator is the advise I've heard. You might check out the forum at www.real4x4.com for more Volvo C30X builds and support.

    Welcome too!

    hi Haf-E

    also heard that the radiator would be too small, also bought one that is 40-50% bigger. I will try to get two powerful fans on, so I'm sure good airflow.

    gearbox with 6 gears from a Mercedes E270 CDI, and the clutch is from Sprinter with greater torque. Toyota corolla shifter for Volvo transfer case.

    Very nice project. How much more Hp/Tq from the new engine? The 6 speed should help as well with the low axle gears.

    I'm not familiar with the TGB 1314, looks like a lot of extra bends in the exhaust pipe, or did you add a burrito cooker?

    Hi.
    Wiki says: 100 kW (136 PS; 134 hp) @5000 rpm. 210 Nm (155 lbft) @2200 rpm.
    It should be theoretically 75-80 km/h @ 2200 rpm. in 6 gear with Volvo portal axles. I chose om606.910 without turbo to make it easier for myself and keep the price down, and get the mechanical pump! Did not change much on the exhaust, used the same bracket. but went up by 1/4 inch. worst thing is that, I have not finished exhaust, still need 1,5 meters
