No, at 210hp from 3.2L it is already in a very high state of tune, especially for a ten year old engine. Forced induction, turbo/supercharger, or a rebuild to 3.6L are the only real options, and as you know, they do cost a small fortune.
I suspect the least expensive would be a centrifugal supercharger. It would be all custom fabricated but if you do most of the work I bet it could be done for under $5,000
Yes, I would do that. Very cheap and makes you smile .
The limited space in the engine room is one reason for less power in the G Wagen than in the other ones ( exhaust system ).
Next is, the G Wagen has to be stable from the temperature, even with a trailer in very high Mountain areas, or Desert ( full load uphill in low gear, no cooling from the front based on very low speed and so on....).
Tuners of "Chippers" [)] don't care for that ( Except AMG ).
There are two 3.6 litre conversion G's currently available, a 1990 G300 (clubgwagen classifieds) and a 1994 G320 (Keiser Motors), both apparently imported by Norm Keiser. I have a couple of questions and would be glad for anyone's input before I buy my first G (private message gratefully accepted if that is a more appropriate response method).
Are these conversions 'AMG' efforts or likely something else since they are not advertised as AMG conversions? Does anyone have any experience with either type of these 3.6 conversions (assuming they're not the same) that they could share? Does anyone have anything to share about the G's Mr. Keiser has imported or about doing business with him?? Does anyone have any knowledge of either of the two specific Gs referred to above??
Hey all! Hope everyone is staying safe and sane.
I have a 2001 G500 which has the OEM radio, I had becker refurbish it with an aux a few years back. Its on the way out and looking to replace it with something that looks good and has bluetooth?

The problem is that the doors won't lock if you press the button on the remote.
The alarm is turned on, but the doors stay unlocked. I checked all wires, and they are all good. I checked all fuses and they are all good too. So I went to the local...
