You may just be opening a huge can of pain . I have a similar vehicle 2006 3.0 D and its not really a performance engine. Although it does go very well I think BMW may have got as much out of it safely as they could. Don't forget the same engine is in 3 series and 5 series with a lot less Weight. 2.5 tonnes is a lot for a 3l to push around . Good luck.

If you make that happen please post the results I currently get 8.6 l per 100 around town although half my driving is on motorway type of roads and am happy with the fuel economy but if there are improvements to be had sounds good to me. On a recent trip half way across Australia nearly 3500 km I only managed to get around 8.2-.3 but at much higher average speeds.
