w201 m111 turbo Exhaust manifold

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 […]

w201 M103 3.0 Loosen fan clutch and pulley

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. […]

w201 M103 3.0 Triggerwheel install

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 […]

w201 M103 3.0 Final drive – how to change w201

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 […]

w201 M103 3.0 Subwoofer in the back dash

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 […]

w140 S500 S500+S400 swap enginemount / motormount w140

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 […]

w201 m52tub28 turbo w201 m52tub28 turbo

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.)

s123 m275 v12 biturbo fitting the engine, next try

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 […]

s123 m275 v12 biturbo Turbo and manifold problem

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 […]

# future projects s123 m275 v12 biturbo Start of build

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
