This is going to be so easy to find..most W126's I see advertised are project minefields..lol. Of course if you really want a project..check out a W140 600SEL with the V12...even the guys into projects try to steer clear from that model..lol.

This is true ive found quite afew 300d's. but cant stand how slow they are.looking at one tomorrow(well technically later today) for $900. anyone know the capabilities of these engines? If i could get 220hp out of one id never drive anything else.

Ive got up to $10k disposable so it could become an interesting project. i was thinking supercharging a 500sec/560sec or putting a twin turbo on a v6.

Thank god i have more than one car, my typical DD (supercharged '93 Buick century pushing 280hp) wasn't too happy today. I was driving like a maniac pushing 70-120 and got stuck in dayton traffic at a stand still. the car proceeded to shudder like hell as i prayed for the car in front of me to move

For that much disposable income, the 617 can be upped much from the factory with new fuel injector plungers, inter-cooler, and turbo, someone on another forum has turbocharged and supercharged the 617 in a 300sd, and it is mean!! It just takes money to soup up the older diesels, but i would go with a gasser, lol.
