I hit it. [:D] A few days ago I raced a Hyundai. I was trying to get in the right lane, he wouldent let me in so I floored it, he floored it and I just pulled away from him. Im going to buy a K&N Air Filter for it. Give it a few more horses.

DONT BUY A K AND N!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

an AMSOIL 2 Stage filter removes more dirt, and lets more air through, and costs half as much. also has a lifetime warranty. but they dont make them for most benz's so......

go to Moguland.com and click products, then benz pefformance diesel, and go to his ebay store link, and buy his PERFORMANCE INTAKE KIT!!!!!!!!!!

it rocks.

u open ur air cleaner like ur changing the filter. remove the filter. u see 3 10 mil bolts on the bottom. remove them. on the front of the turbo there's a "hose clamp" typed clamp. loosen it. pull the air cleaner off its 3 bolts, then pull forwards. its removed. hook up the kits velocity stack to the turbo. tighten up the clamp. mount the air filter on the stack. tighten clamp. plug the new breather onto the breather tube going downwards to the oil pan. connect the 2 hoses, tightening them. ur done, just added 20 hp, and alot of pickup power.

or u could just use ALL amsoil fluids.

That'll teach him not to mess with an old diesel Benz!!! [:p]

Speaking of racing Hyundais...

There was this lady who just annoyed me. We were going along and there was a slower car in front of her, so she accelerated and cut me off. That irked me, so I switched lanes. Then the light turned red so we both stopped at the intersection, front lines.

Light turns green and I floor it. There was an OCTA bus in front of me so I accelerated and cut her off.

She got pissed and switched lanes, but before she was able to I floored it again. Guess what came out of my exhaust? BLACK smoke [:D][:D][:D]

theres no reason to rush whenever youre in such a fabulous machine as a w123 chassis Mercedes-Benz!

Amsoil,

It might also be the same users like you and me who keep viewing this thread that add up to the total views. Be patient. It's Monday tomorrow too, people might sleep early [:D]

I obey speed limits in the city. In the country my ol' 240D hits the bottom of the hills at 75 and on the highest mountains crosses the top at 58. Non-turbo 4 cyl. Top speed so far is 91 on a long flat. I think the auto gearing holds the revs too high. Anybody know the rear-end ratios for '83 240D and say an '83 300 turbo?
I'd change the rear for 1 or 2 extra teeth.

Ya, i used to drive fast when i first got my licence, but now im 19 and i learned alot about engines and diesel engines and stuff so i know whats going on inside the engine when its at 4 grand. So i take it easy driving slow around town and people get mad and pass me all the time but eh, at least im not trashing my engine and brakes. I mean come on the red light is a few hundred yards ahead!

280 TE is quite speedy wagon, so I like to enjoy it fast. I've noticed, that at 130 km/h it consumes much less fuel than at 110 km/h (the worst speed to drive), bet thats above usual speed limits on hiways in Latvia -- 90 km/h... 130 km/h (~87 mph) is the best speed for comfort ride with 280 TE!
