The day has finally come.

Tomorrow I start on my dream venture, a 300hp 87 300D. New #22 head, 7.5mm pump, new twin scroll hx30w (I am already convinced this is too small), 9" clutch, poly urethane rear transmount.... Hoping all goes moderately well...

I'm not a diesel head, but I'm going to subscribe to this just for the stories.

So, are you going to turn it up to the point of a black cloud behind? If so, it'll go too fast. You'll get the black cloud out of sight of the traffic behind you too fast.

Who built your pump?


Please post pictures of your intercooler setup, I'd like to add a front mount to my car but retain my AC.

Dieselmeken was nice enough give me a 7.5mm pump for free, he has made a number of sales off my site. There are a number of other good vendors out there, including pasi with tomniks elements and myna of course.

No plans for intercooler yet. I plan on taking it easy until I have time (and money). I have a feeling a bigger turbo is needed and I will pick and IC at that time. In the meantime, eagle eye on the EGT.

My pin pulled did not show up today, so I used a 6mm bolt and a variety of sockets and washers to pull them both out. If you go this route make DAMN sure you are well seated in the ping. My tap and die kit got a workout today.

I strongly recommend you include an IC or other intake heat mitigation strategy at the same time as you radically increase fueling. It's really bad juju otherwise.

Wow! What a 60' time with that green car must have. My Mercedes is envious.
