What ways are there of enhancing a 1989 300GD engine? Thanks

Turbo it, £1800, but respect that the engine wasn't designed to have a turbo and it will last a little longer, but yea the 300gd is lathargic ! Or lose some ballast, say 1000kgs worth and you'll get the same effect!

I think the pump timing can also be optimised. Couldn't say for sure what difference that would make but I have been told it would give comparable performance to a 230GE (not exactly mind blowing).

You could try Hydrogen from water. About £500 for a kit. Ment to give you a bit more go and greater economy. Search for Miles more on Water?
