W123 TURBO GASOLINE CARLSSON REPLICA
This is my MB W123 2.3 LTS turbo gasoline, everything is stock inside the engine, i change the gear box for a 4 speed manual, short gear ratio, hankook 225/55/16 slicks, headers, 2 terminals mufflers, rial 16'' wheels, turbo garret GT15, Sparco seats, 4 points racing belts, Griffin aluminum racing radiator, intercooler, and water turbo cooler, Autometer gauges, pyrometer, air/fuel ratio, oil temperature, water temperature, boost/vacuum, tachometer w/shift light, racing brake pads, AT blue racing brake fluid, TurboXS blow off valve, custom spoilers, roll cage in 2 1/4 inoxi pipe, and i don't know what else i add the car, after almost 2 years of works all the mechanical work is done, now is only paint and body.The turbo is charging 12 psi using VP racing gasoline, or other mixtures of gasolines of 98 octanes, gasoline is Costa Rica is very bad quality. The car now is around the 200 horse power, is not much but for a street car its car, one of the interesting points is that this car can be driven in the streets legally and have all the permits of the law, i need to work more in the suspension and springs, the car is not made for racing, i just the first car that i had and love it so much that i decide to tune it, i have American muscle cars but this benz is my favorite car, i dont use it every day just like twice a month, i can put other electronic components as a electronic fuel injection, electronic boost controller or things like that but i just want to leave the car the way it is, looks nice and runs delicious.
