My 4 speed 240D will light 'em up pretty good in first gear. Sometimes I can get a healthy chirp and break traction in second gear if I'm not careful. When racing, the acceleration in 3rd is intense, and 4th gear carries you over the finish line and as far as you dare take it.

Stock, a 240D isn't all that fast, as everyone knows. But with the right aftermarket chip and some non-standard tuning via the OBDII port, the output can be increased significantly. Can you say "sleeper"...

Indeed, the tough cast iron block and cast iron head of the 240D has much more upside room for raw tuning potential than does the weaker aluminum components of more recent Japanese cars. Heavy mods that would punch through a more fragile aluminum block are contained within the stout cast iron of the 240D, which translates into breathtaking performance - on the street or on the strip.

It won't help you burn your tires but to get you where you are ultimately going with this, all you have to do is wait until you are below a third tank of fuel and fill-up with gasoline. Go on extended high speed run down the interstate and sell us the remaining parts here when you are done.

If I had money comming out of my ears I would do just that........but finances and SWMBO think otherwise...........

Sell the 300D and buy a 5.0 Mustang. The aftermarket for Mustangs is massive you could bolt on a heck of a lot of power.

You will blow the 617 by feeding propane and nitrous into it, these are not Cummins.

Good grief I can smoke the rear wheels up on my wagon any time. At least until the emergency brake shoes wear out...

A liberal splash of engine oil on the tyres also helps them smoke too.

Shame shame you people don't give up your secrets easily. Best way to increase your engine's horse power, for instant tire fire scorching, is to add bigger injectors. Remove the waste gate for full direct charge and plumb in propane at full charge. Make sure to upgrade your muffler bearings and add a parachute to your rear bumper. Good luck and keep us posted.
