Hello everyone, i'm new here...
Does anyone here know about M51 6 clys TD engine a lot (mechanic or something) ?

What i want to do is to modify the engine so it will have 100 mm of stroke instead of 82.8 mm (by modifying conrods and crankshaft).
And the result should be an increase from 2.5L to 3.0L in capacity.

Is it possible to do that? Could anyone tell me the side effects of that modification?
Or what parts should i replace beside the con rod and

Anyway, thank's alot for reading and answering this thread.
