Looking for more Power from my 300CD Diesel engine
These days, everyone has heard about the amazing power that can be found from tweaking a diesel or adding extra components. I have a 1984 300CD and am very skilled at mechanical fixes and troubleshooting, but I still can't find any info on how to get more power out of my little turbo charged 5 cylinder diesel engine. Anyone ever try to ''trick'' their mini diesel engine?

Re: Looking for more Power from my 300CD Diesel engine
Those old engines were made to last - compare the weight of the motor to one of similar capacity nowadays; the old ones were made of cast iron which is quite heavy, the newer ones like the C270CDi Mercedes motor weighs about 30-40%less due to aluminium parts. Longevity suffers, but you need less power to drive the engine, giving you more power to drive the car. Furthermore, the common rail injection used nowadays are a lot more flexible and powerful, due to the fact that the exact amount of diesel needed per cylinder stroke is injected, whereas the old system injected a fixed amount per stroke, whether you are doing 20mph or 80mph. So, it overfuels at low revs and underfuels at higher revs. To prevent it from burning too lean the engine has a rev limit, roughly where the mixture is running at "100%" effectivity. The newer motors use computers to make the decisions based on 83452 different inputs, the older ones just measured the diesel needed and the air supplied.
So, the sad news is that the only way to get the car to perform a lot better is to put in a new moter eg. C270CDi, or put in a REAL motor like a 350Chevy :-D but leave the 300D badge on and see the other guys $h@ their pants when this "diesel" smokes them!

Generally 20 Kva power generator can produce more power. The voltage used in this 20 kva generator is 3 phase with frequency 50 Hz. 20 kva generator engine is already very enough for use on buildings that require large electrical power or public places such as shops. According to me HARGEN provides the best high quality genset. To fill the fuel tank to the full required 62 liters of fuel in order to use this 20 kva generator engine with more leverage. 20 kva generator engine is also issued a noise that can reach 61.7 db or can be heard up to a distance of 7 meters away from where this generator is located.
No your car will run fine on Kerosine or heating oil. Slightly ******* though as there is duty on diesel fuel and none on kerosine or heating oil, but people do it. Don't use agricultural or marine red diesel as that has a dye in it and they can take your vehicle.
the NON_GRAND VITARA is not here in 2005 sorry.
2.0D (that mean diesel?)
vitara are sold all over planet earth. where are you????
nor are they the SAME,
and vast engine options, there is a J20 gas engine.
the diesel is unlike any gas cars. all parts. related.
2.0 L RF I4 (diesel)
he RF is a SOHC, two valves-per-cylinder engine. (older FE)
One of Mazda's more popular diesel engines, it was also available with a pressure wave supercharger called Comprex.
my guess is that sparse "D" means diesel.
this is usa forum we dont have the RF here.
actually there are 4 engines.
2.0 L RF/RFM I4 (diesel)
2.0 L RHW/RHZ I4 (diesel)
learn that all diesels have there own matching parts
and that means pumps ,relays EFI, etc. all parts fuel. for sure.
As of 2003, the smaller Suzuki Vitara has been withdrawn from the North American market.!!!!!!
no engine, no books. no car. strike 3.
why not post to a non usa car forum even a real suzuki forum.?
many suzuki use a large pink wire for the pump power
this can be a big clue, looking at the relays.
there are two batteries in all diesel's one batterie doesnot provide enough cranking power to start the truck they work together you still have 12v just as everyone else but it requires two to crank it over diesels are the hardest to start so they started doing this to help with that hope i answered your questions have a wonderful day
sounds likea fuel delivery problem,
try your filters first as they are the chepest and eseyest to change then see how you go use ilimanation! if not then start looking into CO settings in the air meter.e.t.c.
Allways try the obvius simple and cheapest solutions first! theynearly allways pay off.
P.S. the CO settings only apply to the petrol version NOT DIESEL
If it is a Diesel engine vesion, old filters will almost certanly be the cause with out doubt!
Have a great day Bruce
I have heard it, but I would advise using the fuel treatment from the auto parts store, that is guaranteed, and made for cleaning. The gas deal could possibly foul your sensors from the cumbustion ratio, and may cause other problems. I would suggest buying a can of "seafoam" I love it, you can put it in your oil, fuel, and intake, and you wouldn't believe the garbage that comes out of your exhaust and in your oil after about 3000 miles. I usually only put it in my oil, and gas, but never tried the intake. Seafoam is the way to go. Should find it at any parts or hardware store. its in a white steel can. Good luck
i experienced something very similar, we checked everything and found 2 issues . 1 ; on chassis in front of diesel tank is a sediment filter, ours was full of jelly and silt. and also on top of diesel tank through trunk outlet and return diesel pipes partly corroded and pulling air in. swapped sender and cleared silt pot and amazed by the power difference too. hope this helps ,Reuben
