so.... why cant we easily get more than 125 BHP in these cars? There must be a way to get another 30-40 BHP with little money spent. How does one get a little more?

"It is a Finnish car competing in the Finnish X-treem PRO Drifting and actually came in third in the overall standing. It is powered by a w210 300TD with a Garret GT40 and a modified diesel pump from a w124 no other changes made to the engine
this video is from last weeks finals in Kemora Finland where Team Black Smoke Racing won for the first time in the PRO-series."

His channel is pretty sweet.

Front axle is from some toyota if I remember right it was from aristo, 850 volvo gear rack (handling) and mazda rx8 coilovers.Rear axle is also from toyota because it didnt work with W124 rear axle or something.
