Merc Diesel was at the top of its class
 
I happened to be searching on info about production #'s for the SDL worldwide (about 13K were produced and sold), I came upon this article.

Yuck, why on earth does that guy still have the trap oxidizer?

I have no idea why the trap is still on there, but I bet he could go faster than 120 if it was off. And the MPG would increase, and the turbo and head wouldn't be at risk from the shards of the trap.

You're definitely right saying YUCK at the exterior modifications. That guy has no taste!

One other thing. A typo. The 350 engined cars do NOT only have 121 bhp and 165 lb/ft of torque. The 2.5 turbo had those figures.

My 350 has 134 bhp @ 4K rpm, and 228 lb/ft @ 2K rpm.
