FS R107 M117 try y manifolds anmd downpipes

The set I pulled from the 500SLC is for sale. Obviously original Mercedes parts and in good condition. The set is rare in that it has NO EGR. The set of four manifolds is unavailable in the USA from MB or just about anyone, AFAIK. The downpipes can be bought from some MB dealers- but others will tell you they cannot get them. a dealer in NY told me the cost of the downpipes alone would be about $700. Expect about a 30HP increase. Downpipes and manifolds for $800 plus shipping. PM with interest.
Thanks
William

those Try y's are really nice and many are looking for them, but for that price I dont think selling them any time soon.

I sold the last set of w126 tri y's for $400 and could have gotten more- and those did not have the down pipes. The only other option is custom headers which are gonna be more than a grand with downpipes- and they certainly can be no better than the original MB product. Yes the price is high- but less than a third of the new price- if you could buy them. People spend $2300 for a euro bumper... and if they dont sell I have the car to use them. BTW the down pipes have been wire brushed, rust treated and high temp painted silver. Pics soon. Folks these are chassis specific- and these are for a R107- i.e. an SL. They fit any M117 on an engine stand- but the 5.0/5.6 liter engine came in the g-wagon, the se/sel/sec and the 500/560SL. The steering box is in different places on each chassis and therefore the headers and downpipes ARE chassis specific. THESE WILL ONLY FIT R107, and I believe only a 500/560SL.

Definitely get the new pics up....you'll sell them.

With existing pics, hard to justify as they look rusted out and near dead. I am sure they aren't, but they do look that way.

Good luck!

downpipes painted... process coatings will ceramic coat the headers- but that would be at least $200- well worth it, but until I decide to sell them or install them I'm waiting. Thanks Bruce.
