How many Ford parts are on your Mercedes?

I am up to 7. 2 Throttle bodies, 2 TPS, 1 PWM IAC valve, 2 RF Caps. Sorry if it's too on topic. I am just sitting in my garage working on the S600 while I smack you old guys around.

Woot! Just added a Nissan part. The throttle cable works perfectly for the passenger side.

Didn't like the original system?

And when does the smacking start? All we have seen so far is flapping and yammering. I don't think you quite understand what a smackdown would be like.

The original system had throttle bodies that cost $3800 and were built with parts that were never made available for consumer purchasing. German engineering at it's most expensive.

Actually most Bosch TBs are rebuildable on some levels. I know the 600 has a different system but 3800 seems high. Who priced that out for you?

the 7.2 will create more turbulence and you will never get an even mix ratio. There are reasons why you stick to original design, good luck with a sputtering s600.
How do I know? I am just full of shit that's all
