The thing runs increbily strong and has been well maintained, but I don't want to blow it out. Similarly would I need to rebuild it if I was just running low boost of around 7-9 psi? I'm very interested in this system! Let me know, Thanks, James
These kits are not that simple to install, theres lots of factors that you need to consider, i dont see how the exhaust and intake manifolds are fitting the same in both engines, you need to up-grade the head engine gasket, ARP bolts, fuel management and LOTS LOTS of time in setting, i understand that this is a kit but its not that simple, specially on mercedes that everything has to be custom made, i have an excellent book named Maximum Boost, i will e-mail it to you if your thinking in doing your engine turbocharged. The rule says that if you have a car that is 3 Lts when you boost 14,7 psi (1 bar) youre engine transforms into a (3000cc X 1,6) 4,8 lt, which means that you have to feed more and better youre car with gasoline, at this point your intake, exhaust, cooling systems, doesent match the need of the engine, thats is when the engines got broken, per bad or poor settings.
