Quite obvious it isnt straight, and where the leak(s) has been. It had massive cracks almost al over it, atleast 4 large ones, but untill resurfaced/planed it wont be quiet.. — Update: Got the manifold machined at RDB DynoTuning Uddevalla, aint got no problem anylonger with sound/leaks against the engine, the manifold looked like a […]
brake upgrades on w201
First testdrive after buy, 0.3 bar of boost, and with right wheelbearing rear being completely loose
Start by getting the water and cooler of. This is very easily done by loosening the three bolts on each side of cooler-bar, by the headlights. There is also one screw in the center, down by the bumper. After this you loosen the hose going to the water coolant reserv and collect the water coming out into something. […]
Got the timing wheel installed. It’s a 60-2 wheel from Turbobandit in Sweden meant for the M103 crank pulley. I’m very pleased with this piece. It is the same thickness as and therefor replaces the balancer. It’s a pretty simple process in theory but I had some problem getting the harmonic balancer of since I […]
This example is on a 190e 2.6, swapping the original 3.27 diff for one from a 2.3 16v with LSD (also 3.27). For a list of possible gear-ratios, check here: http://mbturbo.com/gear-ratios/ Start by loosening the exhaust and the metal protector going around the cardanshaft right in front of the differential. They are going to […]
When I bought this car, it had a 12″ sub woofer that was sliding around in the trunk. It was always in the way and also, the sub didn’t sound to well. Turned out that the enclosure didn’t have the correct dimensions, so no wonder. Anyway, I got an idea of installing it in the […]
Swapped the enginemount on the cars right side, the engine transplanted vibrations to the car when decelerating/enginebraking at about 50-60mph, not a nasty sound, but not something that should exist in a w140 The hardest part was to get the top 17mm bolt loose, one at the bottom was broken of (darn rust) but the […]
leather dashboard w140 S500
w201 190E with an bmw engine M52tuB28 and a VEMS system made by Engdahl Motorsport http://engdahlmotorsport.se/ launchcontrol and a heck of a drive. (Engdahl Motorsport helps out most of the west-coast of sweden and a bit more with their custom ECUs for Volvo, BMW and Mercedes and more.)
2.47LSD with large yoke/flange, swapped side of driveshafts, Left to right, and right to left. will probably have to rebuild the LSD-stuff, but will se how it behaves. 2.47 with the 722.6 should give me something along 1600rpm @100km/h and with the m275s insane torque, it wont be a problem with those low rpms. will […]
the engine had some wierd vibrations going on at certain rpms, thought the enginemounts might be collapsed, but was velcomed by three stacked hockey pucks, getting some used original to se how it behaves
testfitting the engine once again, planing and looking at options regarding enginemounts in the w123, would prefer atleast two per side to cope with the massive torque the engine has waterintercoolers in place, will probably reweld the inlet to those and put the blowofvalves directly there. a tad larger turbo than i plan to […]
turbowhistle, moving the car, middle of winter, getting repainted and overhauled.
got the TD04H-19T turbos, and the manifolds are away to get machined… slow progress but the td04 should be able to give us proper and early boost paired with the m275 engine.
supercharging and turbocharging a 280E w123 m110 engine, custom built megasquirt injection with BMW-fuelrail and audi injectors.
The turbo and manifold is in one piece, and just a few centimeters to large to fit in the car, instead of rebuilding the chassi, the plan is to weld new manifolds, and get another set of turbos, more work, but we will be able to fit the turbos we choose, and gain the same […]
Removal of old engine, a 200gasoline 5 speed in good condition, Did some measurments, the stearing will probably have to be rebuilt, other than that, no immediate problems… Edit: stearing seems to work fine, the manifolds and turbos needs to be changed thou. the new engine, 50000km stage1 (?) m275 from a w220
