400 hp 190 e 2.3?

Anyone every heard of a souped up 2.3 like this? How do you do it?
1996 E320
2000 C230 Kompressor
1988 190e 2.3 - 225K miles, owned for 7 years. I cannot say enough good things about this car. Very well built, even at 225 it ran like new.

This would be 2.879 horsepower per cubic inch. When you consider that a Winston Cup engine only makes about 2.23 horsepower per cubic inch, this is quite remarkable. I wonder what holds it together.

Have a great day,
