Not your Daddy's S-Class.....

Somehow, I don't they're running the original motor in this thing. Didn't have a chance to get vitals, but it scoots pretty good.

We need to get him some pro-car-parts clear corners, so we can clear up the confusion as to wether they are durable or not !

Well, you should look at a diesel pickup discussion forum. Some crazy fools have gotten their Dodge/Cummins pickups into the 12s running on on mixed fuels, with a few tuning tricks.

Imagine if someone pulled the engine out of a 300SD and put a Cummins 5.9 liter Six with some mods on it into the engine bay (hood would probably have to go bye bye, and front suspension mods would be required...not to mentions a hell of a lot of other stuff).

Not Dodge, but you get the idea...

"turbo-deezl" being a DT466 set up for tractor pulling with 4 turbos, propane and nitrous injection, and God-knows-how-much-else done to it...

I've actually ridden on one of those seriously souped-up B-series Cummins Dodges...quite impressive. I drove one once, with some relatively minor mods. Fastest vehicle (g@$ or diesel) I've ever driven. And 500K easy-to-do miles to boot. And people wonder why I want to put a 6BTA in my F-250...

Actually, I wonder how a 4BTA would do for mileage in a 123? Especially if an overdrive tranny was put in place...? Even the 4 cylinder 3.9l version's gotta have enough juice to move a 300D at the same speeds as a 617 would, with enough of an overdrive ratio. Hmm...wonder what kinda RPM's (and therefore mileage) that would be able to do at 70...?
