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.

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.

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 […]
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 […]
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
