Post Interesting Finds on eBay

Hi Ken,

May I suggest that you start a thread "interesting ebay finds" for our R129's, similar to the W140 forum.

Hi guys it's not on Ebay but it's on our For Sale forum what I found and I thought it might be of some interest for some of us: it's an inheritance of Mercedes parts and some are for the R129.
Here is the LINK.

Cheers.

Hi guys this is not directly related to the R129 but looks promising.
What do you all think of this?

Hi Mick.

The HKS Universal Super Sequential Blow Off Valve SSQV alone (judging by whats in the photo) retails at around $300 usd. The T3/T4 (30mm inlet - 40mm outlet) hybrid turbo even if it is non ball-bearing type typically can retail for $700-$800 a piece. To be honest I would not call this a turbo "kit" by any means as they are only a few parts. This "kit" is missing very important pieces of the puzzle such as the turbo manifolds, down pipes, exhaust piping, fuel management, plus alot of hours labor work to get the plumbing fabricated and everything put together, plus fine tuning, etc. A single turbo T3/T4 setup like this would be ideal for a inline four cylinder in my opinion as the optimal realiable power would be less then 450whp.


Not for me, but I must say their parts prices are very cheap!
Please beware of scammers!

Not a bad price. 1/2 off the dealer prices...

You 500 guys who have 1995 and older cars, and haven't replaced your harness yet, ought to pick that up as a spare.
