1989 300E, 1992 400E, 1991 300E, 2004 240 4MATIC, 1972 Nova Prostreet
Okay, I own a 3.0 liter 6ix. Seems like all of you guys spend the bulk of your time pimping the exteriors of your MB's and doing some nice wheel and suspension changes. I have done some of the same to mine. But how about engine modifications? Is anyone interested, or are the parts simply not available? There has to be a supplier of camshafts, for example, that can take advantage of this decent compression ratio, no? Or perhaps different ratio rockers to improve lift? Anything? I would hate to have to install a V8 and suffer the costs and headaches in order to cross the 200+ hp border. I really like my 2 300E's, but my wife's 240 4 matic wagon kicks my ass! Must I revert to my American v8 for kicks? Please point me to some 6ix cylinder upgrades!!
