More HP

Hi from Australia
I own a Ssangyong Musso 4X4 1997 which run a mercedes m104 3.2 motor.
Ssanyong are made in Korea with motor made under licence for mercedes.
I am hoping to get some more HP out of it, I am running a K@h filter and a power chip taking the motor from 161kw to a claimed 183kw, Is there any way of getting some more power out of that motor?

Wrong engine, wrong forum.
MB owners are pretty conservative and pimping the cars is not too popular here.
Running engine on filter allowing dust to pass thru is almost a crime
You want to boost your car, go to Audi. Those guys boost 200 HP engines to 450 or even 900 HP.
just not for long.

Thumbs down


To prep it well will be best for you to trade engines or find a GPM prepping shop where they can budget you a NASCAR type prep or well made turbo booster, though I bet they'll recommend going to a bigger engine. We are simple people here that do not seek over 180 mph from our stock engines 'cause we'd like to enjoy them over 1/2M miles without tickets. Sorry, mate.

Cheers, JV
