Need source for H-D (4-row) GWagen (W460) radiator

Hi, all. I'm looking for a vendor who would have a higher-than-standard capacity radiator for my 1984 GWagen (gray-market, so MB dealers won't help). This would be a 4-row radiator, rather than the...

The second factor -- the Country!

However, something else that I discovered relates to what I noted in the first messsage. Here in the USA, all the M-class brochures, for both the 320 and the 430, list 5,000 lbs as their towing...

Another attempt at calculations

You know, what about this simple function?

1/((17.4/13)^3)

This gives me a factor of 0.417. Could this be the proportion of horsepower increase? About 64 hp more? This would mean that I've...

Kuan,
Both of the formulae at the site that you recommended ( http://vette.ohioracing.com/hp.html ) treat the estimation of horsepower as a CUBED (i.e., raised to the power of 3) function.

Thoughts on trading up to a W463

Well, I guess they're right about the comforts. When we get into our E-class, my wife just loves the ride and comfort (so do I, I readily admit it) -- the W460 is stark, in comparison. But I find...
