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??

Is there something...
I've been working on this complete lift kit for quite some time now. I noticed nobody on the market had a complete kit that " Properly" Lifted a W463 chassis higher than 3 inches. As you may no and if you dont know. When lifted a G over 2-3 inches drastically changes the caster angle on the...
New to the forum. I've got a W463 Cabrio as well as a W204 C63. Cabrio is a bit of an ongoing project now with g63 axels among other things. I really would like to get the look of a w460 wolf with regards to the bars in the back. Been lurking here for a while and haven't been able to...
Does anyone have any experience with Bilstein vs Koni shocks? I'm looking to improve the harsh ride of the factory shocks on my 2006 G55 and looking towards one of the two. Looking for primarily comfort for street use (although normal street use can be considered off-road sometimes in Nigeria...
