Replacing the fuelinjectors of the w201 with m103 and a s200turbo, Bought 6 of theese and might be able to make them work without to much alteration of the intake manifold or fuelrail Need longer “tips” to have them properly seated in the manifold.
Had some problem with air leaking in our previous solution for injectors, so we decided to make proper injector seats.
We did the first startup of the m103 turbo w201 yesterday. A bit of trouble with setting up the trigger-sensor correctly and had to play with the settings of the ECU, Megasquirt MS3X, Engdahl Motorsport both made us a start-map aswell as supported us on the go with some feedback regarding timing. http://www.engdahlmotorsport.se/ The engine […]
3″ exhaust with a race cat, and a slimline muffler from Apple mufflers.
Found an acceptable manifold online which fit except for the WG which we had to reroute a bit. Turbo is a Schwitzer S200 with 0.85 AR.
Modified the tunnel to accomodate for the BMW gearbox GS6-37DZ while keeping the default interior. Gs6-37dz gearbox in w201 behind a m103, but should be the same behind a om603 or om606 aswell.
Intercooler mount for an intercooler from biltema here i sweden
We used a throttle body from a Volvo 960 since it has a real TPS sensor unlike the stock M103 which only has a WOT switch. We then coupled that with the wiring etc. from a Volvo B230E. Next was converting the kjet injector seats to use bosch style injectors which turned out to be […]
Ordered a gearbox and clutch+flywheel from bakaxeldelar as mentioned earlier.

Somewhat near us here in gothenburg is a company called Teamtech, that has helped me with both aluminium welding of a trailer, aswell as some fueltanks for an old Volvo truck. they have also made some flanges, aswell as triggerwheels to be used at future m103 swapps, hopefully in a w114 coupe. They have one […]
Hello Got tired of the old worn stock shocks of the KYB brand, aswell as wanted to swap out the cut stock w124 rear springs. The stock w201 springs is in my opinion way to soft, even when driving normal, put two persons in the backseat and it will start to behave irrational on the […]
Had some problems with the frontbrakes, vibrations when braking more aggresive, not something that belongs on a Mercedes. swapped the front discs for new ATE discs, and the difference was huge. Swapped both inner and outer tierods at the same time aswell as the play eliminated made a huge difference in how tight the stearing […]
Old Wheelbearing Remove the nut holding the driveshaft in place, the Large 34mm 12sprocket nut After that is loose, with a slidehammer get the hub of. Remove wheelhub Remove locking ring/ circlip holding the bearing in place so it wont pop out pull the bearing out remove old bearing parts from hub press the […]
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 […]
A friend was scraping his W201 so I took the opportunity and bought the interior among other things.
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.
