Had some problem with air leaking in our previous solution for injectors, so we decided to make proper injector seats.
Building the daily, a s124 that has gotten a om606.912, fivespeed manual, and a turbo-manifold from a om606.962 Taking the oilfeed from the oilfilter, where the oilpressuresensor is connected, with the help of a t-part Oilfilter outlet for oilpressuresensor Hoses, connections and gauge bought from Hydroscand https://www.hydroscand.se/ Complete kit, modded stock oilfeed and turned 180degrees, filled […]
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 […]

We have a s124 that now is equipped with a om606.912 engine and a manual transmission the 717.433 It is supposed to be used as something of a daily, and would benefit from some more power. removed the oilpan from the om606NA after a bit of struggle, we first lifted the engine at both the […]
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 […]

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 […]
