well:

don't believe it (or more info): http://mbspy.bacosys.be/c111_III.htm


Imagine a W123 300TDT: 230BHP, 300LB/ft
this must be a freaky fast old stinky diesel![:D][8D][:p][}:)][;)][^][:eek:)]

Yep. That's the ole' 617 all right. It could go 200 + mph, too. World's fastest diese...

Yep. That's the ole' 617 all right. It could go 200 + mph, too. World's fastest diesel. Basically the same engine as in the standard 5 cylinder 617 in the 1978 300SD or W123 300D turbodiesel (except for an intercooler and alloy cylinder head).

My personal favorite version of the C111![:D]

All you really have to do to achieve that power is to increase airflow and advance the fuel. There ya' go!

And my guess is that it was running a ton of boost with increased fuel delivery...or do you get that much more power with just heads and IC?

I also think there's a huge turbopressure to achieve that kind of power from a late '70's diesel --> the max. torque is 403nm at 3700 (!!!) rpm, for a Turbo-diesel!
