I have one. Stock it was sucky. I put a nonwastegated borg warner turbo on it, and flashed it to some older 6NZ files, plus a fuel temp wire now it's a great motor. Putting 6NZ injectors and camshaft, or PDI injectors with 800hp marine cam would make mine better but it does good now. On the rollers stock form MBN 475 flash it put 421hp down we estimated it almost puts 500 down now. Pulls like a champ. Egt's never over 900* now. In stock form would go to 1200* easily or higher. I have about $2500 in ecm flash, turbo upgrade, and fuel temp wire to make it right. I would not hesitate to buy a well maintained stock MBN but would definitely do some tweaking to it to make it good. When negotiating price on an MBN truck use the fact that bridge motors are not so great from the research you have done to get the selling price down even lower. Tell them you have been looking at a similar '02 6NZ truck or something along those lines. Get a W900 or 379 with an MBN so you wont have any cooling issues. I have a T600 and right now dont have any problems but I belive I'm at the limit of how high I can go performacewise without first putting a 4 core radiator in.
