Mercedes / ML 320


Expert: – 6/18/2009


I am pulling a boat with my ML320. What can I do to get a HP boost to in pulling the boat?



How much does the weigh? What is the horse rating on your engine. Is an automatic or strait drive?

The ML is AWD and has towing capacity of 5000lbs. The is 4200lbs dry. with I am at maximum. Not sure on the HP rating but it is the V6 3.2 engine by MB. Is there a boost kit or to boost HP




Sorry to say that your are at the max for a of reasons. As you know marketing is of the selling. 5000 capacity, is for term short haul and low profile loads.

Of course the dealer would not to light the idea of wind or CG of the trailer etc. It is rather limiting as you have already

In fact, even if you could the performance on the six pack, in marginal conditions, it could become the walking the Dawg. and how about capacity in an emergency. You should have trailer brakes on the with this combination.

I have much rather cut an opening in the hood and install a blower. ;-)) but the expense may not the gain.

Good Luck

Let me know if you additional questions.

QUESTION: Yes I as much. The trailer has disk and I have towed this 800miles for 14 hours already. very well at speeds up to 70 I was thinking air but not a blower as I am an Eaton employee and that is one of the products we

I may check to see if the have a street for this engine or was wondering if I to one of these new air filters of the lesss kind.


Its difficult to say about the restricting air filter. One would that more air in would for more fuel burn. because the map sensor has been for all around driving, it may just for the different air flow and cut back on the

You may want to investigate some enhanced computer tuning use in racing. I would check some of the racing sites or to see if some one has tweaked the software may allow you to change the torque on the low end.

However, there may a be a limiting we have not discussed and that is the on the automatic transmission. This may the weak point with to performance.

I have a friend who a small Chevy truck and a hot air balloon trailer. He kept a bad fuel pump code. the forth pump changed warranty, we stopped by an independent because the check engine came on ‘again’. This after running the codes the asked what gear we use to the load.

Fifth was the reply. He said to use because the long hauls load in fifth were the computer to read wrong Sure enough pulling the in 4th cured the fuel pump

But that is another story.
