Question , is there anyone making a turbo kit for the 300C ? And is a turbo something some of you 300C owners are thinking about ? I see some talk on a charger but no word on a turbo kit .

not to mention (as has been mentioned on the supercharger thread) that engine management will be a problem with forced induction on these cars. I am sure at some point people will be able to manipulate the electronics to react to blowers and turbos, but right now, noone seems to be rushing to market. See the Supercharger thread under performance mods for more information. There is no need to repeat it all here.

When MDS goes in effect, does it alternate which side of the cylinders shut off or does one side always go off? It'd turn back on if you get on the pedal but if the turbo was on the side that shuts off you'd be out for constant boost. And extra heat isn't a problem if you have an intercooler.

It doesn't shut off one side, but it does shut off the same cylinders every time.

Fast4door is correct, when MDS is operating you are running a V4, kind of like an old SAAB. Anyone know what SAAB stands for and while you are at it, where Volvo and Mercedes got thier names?

i thought the intercooler just cooled the air going into the intake manifold? had nothing to do with cooling the turbo.

James, U R right. The intercooler function is to cool the air as it leaves the SC and B4 enters the engine. The fuel/air mixture burns more efficiently and the result is more horsepower. The intercooler has nothing to do with the temp of the huffer...
Whipple gave up on designing one for the Hemi; Kenne Bell gave up on the 03 Hemi and is now focusing on the 04 (DCX is giving these aftermarket guys ZERO help and information, and they are struggling with the MDS and the ECM programming...Kenne's people responded to one of my Email queries, saying "the electronics in THIS engine are very new stuff...very complicated, but we refuse to give up!"). Even if I had to mod the hood, I would jump at the chance if the SC unit was available. :D

i wonder why DC has made this car so difficult to "modify, upgrade, soupup"?
afterall, if modified the warranty is void, and will save them money. at very least, improved performance at owners expense will give further impetus to people to buy the 300c.

At least the SRT 8 won't have MDS!!! That should solve that problem.. Wonder if there is a way to deactivate it on the car now???

Google knows all!
http://www.carprices.co.uk/manufacturers/saab

In 1937 the Svenska Aeroplan Aktiebolaget (Acronym SAAB) was created as the manufacturer for the national military aircraft.

After the Second World war the demand for aircraft plummeted with the management realising Saab should identify new areas of new growth. They decided that the automobile industry was the way ahead and so fifteen aircraft engineers were chosen and used to work on, and develop the companies’ first prototype car. Having no experience in this area created some fresh and innovative thinking, not trapped by the constraints which other manufacturers worked under – the convential mentality for car design.

In 1947 the prototypes the company created were presented to the press. This was a car like no other that existed. It featured a front wheel drive, a two-stroke engine and a strong safety cage with aerodynamics also kept in mind. This vehicle was called the Saab 92001.

In 1949 production of this model began producing over 20,000 cars until production was halted in 1956.

In 1955 the next Saab model was created – the Saab 93. This model featured a new transmission and tubeless tyres

Over the next years Saab produced many models including the Saab Sonetti (a sports car) and the Saab 95. They continue to create and manufacture new models.

Volvo
The word,Volvo, is Latin which means "I roll". Combined that with the circle and arrow (alchemist's symbol for iron), the infamous logo means rolling strength.

Mercedes
A little confusing, but it appears Daimler-Motoren-Gesellschat built a special car for a customer named Emil Jellinek, and Emil Jellinek named the car after his ten-year-old daughter Mercedes. Apparently Emil's car, Mercedes, was fast for its day (35hp and went 55mph) and was entered into some races. It looks like the name was adopted by Daimler-Motoren-Gesellschat.
