Post by 260e3 » Sat 15 Jul, 2017 12:08 am

i must have picked this up years ago when i first got my 114 ( 1990's)
interesting the mods available for the m117 m110 and M103
includes a few suspension options too.

Thanks for sharing that and has stuff that i didn't know. I didn't realise they did a 2v 6.0, i thought they were all DOHC. And not sure if it is a typo but the 5.6 they have as having 41mm inlets and 5.0 having 44mm yet 44 more hp from the 5.6? Looks like same AMG cam - 5.0, used on both. That's good to know because i have a set of those cams i was thinking about putting into a 560 engine. Love those cams and how they behave in my 500SEC!

I wish we could still get all of that gear! How complex are those diffs and look at all those lovely ratios!

I can see why these Merc V8 engines don't make big power, with only 44mm valves you can only make so much. I know some people like to knock American V8s but big bores, 50mm inlets and big ports in the standard Chev 350 give you the basics to generate power. The valve sizes of the Mercedes would have been chosen to suit the engine characteristics that they wanted in the engines, they were probably not chasing big power.

I would be interested in seeing that one.
What would AMG do to a 300D to improve it's performance?
If it had the Turbodiesel engine, then the Finns have lots of experience cranking up the power on them.
Life is a journey, with problems to solve, lessons to learn, but most of all, experiences to enjoy.

'83 W123 300D 325000km (Wife's car Josephine - sold).
'84 W123 300D replaced good OM617 912 with OM617 952 and enjoyed having good acceleration for the first time since first driving a 300D in 2002 - became engine and trans donor for 300CD Turbodiesel conversion. Now parted out.
'86 W124 300D sold (Wife's old car - sold )
'85 W123 300CD, 275 000km (Fatmobile) rebuilt turbodiesel from previous Fatmobile transplanted into 280CE (SOLD)
'99 W202 C250 Turbodiesel (my darling Wife's car - Sold)
'98 W202 C250 Turbodiesel (my car - Sold)
