Default Re: Sprinter Performance Upgrades

So, the power diesel module and fuel additives are the mainstay of performance upgrades at this point.

From a full disclosure standpoint, and for those who have never upgraded, I also drive a Cadillac CTS-V, a 400hp, 395 ft lbs torque automobile with a six speed manual that does 0-60 in 4.6 seconds. That car has been modded with air intake, exhaust and a power tuned chip. 5 years later, it runs great and just wont quit. It still is hard work to keep the rear wheels from 'hopping' when you get heavy footed. So doing tunning changes is not unusual for me on gas engines. My quandry is that my new 09 Sprinter is only my second diesel and I dont have experience with modficiation, but with 156 horses and the standard torgue a bit more with some additional fuel economy would be a good thing.

I am investigating the power diesel module which as was stated increases fuel pressure without changing anything in the actual electronic tuning of the engine.

Thanks for the past and continuing responses.
