I would like to have better engine performance. I have a MB WDB2011281F343389-0 and I know it: It would be advantageous to place an intercooler and how to get a design for this?

My car has 120000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Admittedly, the 190D is not a big performer, so it’s understandable that you would want to do something to improve the power, but I don’t think there is much out there for that car. If you are determined, however, there are a number of turbo performance sites out there that would get you started. Among the 201 bodied Mercedes, the only real performer is the gasoline powered 16 valve version. There is a lot of aftermarket available for that.
