Hello I was planning on doing some modifications on my newly acquired 300sl. I understand that it is much slower than a 500 or 600 but also that the 3.0l I6 is a very good candidate for modification. I've been told that it may even be able to create 400+ hp. I was wondering what modifications i could do aside from forced induction to boost my power.

hey and welcome to the site mate.

dont know the engine but FI would be about the only way i could see 400 being achievable while keeping the car usable.

what are emission laws like in your state ? could you get away with de cat or sports cat ?

the emissions are no problem the car isn't going to be registered its under dealer inventory its a loophole i found but the bad part is that it has to be driven only with dealer plates which have restrictions but yes de-cating is no problem
