well i have never modded a 3010 there just a base farm tractor put a straight stack on it to get a little more power, if you want a good tractor get a JD 4320 its a 4020 with a turbo from factory, you turn the fuel up on them and dam will they go and have all the power to spare.. have one on the farm and its a great tractor.

to put a turbo on that 3010 ur gonna have to change air stack and run a secondary oil line from oil pump primary line to turbo you should be able to run a small cummings turbo on it with a few modifications!! straight pipe the intake stack and throw a k&n or a green performance filter on it with a prescreen cover that way your safe of nothing getting into turbo!!!

i am a tractor tech for deere and if you want to put a turbo on it M&W makes a turbo kit for the old 10 and 20 series deere tractors. just make sure that you dont put to big of turbo on them though, the heads really aint made for much boost. You can also put a different intake on it to if it has a oil bath. hope this helps you

Try painting it red! Everything runs better in red! Just a joke, but I do prefer red and blue. You may want to check out sites dedicated to tractors, maybe yesterdaystractors.com. Good luck, those are some of the better looking tractors Deere made.

ok let me ask yall, I have a 6110 JD at work. And it has a turbo, and it only pushes 65 horses. What do yall think I can do to get more power out of it. It is used to drag an indoor dirt arena.

i think just turning the fuel screw and stacking it will get you a few ponnies, if you plan on turboing it check and see what mw offers b4 trying to fab somthing

I will tell you know to be careful with adding power to a 3010. The crank shafts were made cheap and have a reputation to crack. The turbo is a good mod but don't go too big and don't push over 12 psi. I know that don't sound like much but if you go any higher you WILL blow the head gasket quite a bit. I would look into tuning the pump and maybe a set of 4010 injectors and rebuild them.
