This is like the main thing that makes me doubt credibility around here. Hmmm.....


But anyways so greazzer is suggesting a COMPLETLY new fuel set up. Which kind of seems smart because it's obvious to me that these injection pumps are kind of crappy.... Like I ran a 5 gallon bucket of veggie oil (no diesel on hand) from my mom's pantry and this Bosch IP could barely keep up. The car just sputtered and sputtered.
You believe the sales marketing pitch everyone says on Craigslist to sell the car "1 million mile engine" and that you don't need to do any maintenance too. lol. the engines that run that long are STOCK with lots, and lots of maintenance done.

The injection pump is far from crappy. lol. they last the life of the car and require little maintenance besides needing fuel leaks taken care of every so often. you thinks it crappy because you put in a bunch of unfiltered vegetable oil into it with no idea that it's supposed to be filtered and strained. so you're expecting that thick gunky oil to run thru the car? Okay!

you've done this all before and doubt our knowledge and insult us, but yet you're asking us questions? How do you know so much then if you're asking us questions?

Are you going to offer that car for sale on Craigslist for $9000? Does it get 40 miles per gallon?

I am waiting to see what gimmick Mr. Mega Horspower will come up with next
When that happens, I want to see photos! Video would be even better.

Have you taken a moment to read your own thread? Folks were immediately available and interested in helping you. And, they did.

You received a lot of information and years of tinkering distilled into numerous posts. You would think snappies would have been posted a while ago. That tells you something I hope.

I want to see pics and a recorded 0-60 time. It should be a zero to sixty in less than 15 seconds if you're running 235whp

heads up. go and read the posts asking from the beginning of them asking for your pics and dyny sheets etc. it's not just some sudden interest

Still waiting on that dyno sheet and a recorded 0-60 or 1/4 mile drag time. The crickets are getting pretty loud...

...

So with all these simple DIY mods my ride is at a VERY CONSERVATIVE ~235 horse power to the wheels.

So if anyone else wants a FAST w123 this is what u need to do. I haven't been able to get her out on the road yet because my license is suspended until next month. That's why I've had the time to add all these updates to the car. She really idles Strong rigjt now tho and she sounded soooo fast on that DYNO. ...

My last post or assistance until I see some snappies.

Already said I can't take the car to the track yet cuz my license is suspended until next month....

And also said I got in heated mouth to mouth combat with the DYNO operator and stormed out of there... And anyways why would I want a result sheet from a broken DYNO???? We can at least all agree that she has 150++ of pony power.

Plus all my weight reduction and track grip (wing) can't be calculated on a DYNO....

I'm jus a 240 guy ya kno

Some propane and nitrous will really wake it up. Keep a five gallon bucket in the trunk to carry the rods when they shoot out of the block. It would be an awesome 3.7 seconds though.
