One of the performance projects that we have been looking at is working up a Last Gen Diesel with big twin turbos and making a good High Performance/High Efficiency package. We wanted to take the BlueTec system but the cost of injectors and the rest of the delivery system makes experimenting annoyingly expensive.

If I find a nice rolled BlueTec, on the other hand, that will change.


Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.

You could much more easily increase MB turbodiesel performance, by using the old-tec, pre-electronic controlled injection pumps. The inline OM603/6 engines can be easily pumped up to 400-500hp with simple injection pump/turbo/intercooler upgrades.
