Need some help with my W126.
Hey guys, i'm new here. I just inherited a W126 sec amg from my grandfather, and I have a few questions.
First of all, I need more power from it. It is such a pimp looking car, it needs to be able to hold its own. What are some good sites, or am I stuck fabbing stuff?
Second, the engine overheated a little when I was pushing it really hard, so I cut a hole in the hood, and that seemed to help. Will the cut areas rust, or should I paint them? Do the relays burn out easily?
I am in the process of removing alot of the interior. I have stumbled upon alot of unecessary weight in the sound deadining, carpets, climate controls and seat motors. They sure did make theese heavy. I also have almost all the a/c ripped out, I did have to use a sawzall to get the lines thru the firewall out.
Basically the plans are to continue removing interior parts, cut off the mufflers/resenators and cat, and do a 3in side exit. I am also going to cut a few coils as this bitch sits waayyy too high, and needs to scrape. I haso have a blow thru turbo system in the works, but that will be a few months.
One thing I will say, is ever since I spraypainted it flat black (looks sooooo stellar) my grandmother has been acting weird.
Anyways, any help/pointers would be appreciated, along with any info you guys have on the car, as I pretty much no knothing about it. Thanks guys, take it easy on me, i'm a noob. Cheers
