Hello from Texas

Hello all,

I just procured a 1986 190e (W201). I have been primarily a Japanese performance person before, but have always wanted a German to play with.

I got this car VERY cheap, and its actually in very good shape. No rust issues, body and glass are all straight. The previous owner needed the trans for his other 190, so that was part of the deal...and the motor had a knock, so I told him to take both. So its a 100% complete car, less the motor and trans. He left all of the wiring, ECU, and other parts in tact though.

After I thoroughly clean the empty engine bay and rest of the car down to the shiny silver paint... I need to figure out what to put in that engine bay besides another 2.3L. I'm always open to suggestions.

I love this site, and have looked it for a long time before I joined...so its good to be here. I hope to find a local meeting or get-together so I can go hang out and meet others.

-Scott
