Rare European ECE "Tri-Y" M117 500/560 motors

A set of 4 piece manifolds off the European ECE 560 motor. Can be used on both the M117 5.0 and 5.6 motors in the W126 chassis.

These headers are the best and cheapest way to get any noticeable performance gains out of your 500/560 M117's. The US-spec manifolds are by far one of the most restricting factors in the 560's 238hp figure. ECE versions came out with 300hp. RennTech in the past has offered these same style manifolds at a tune of $2495.

Dyno figures have shown 25hp gains.

Price: $900 obo, can have them professionally ceramic coated prior to shipping at an additional cost.

They are not easy to come by as only the 220kW(300hp) version motors had these manifolds. Most of the 560's I've seen are standard Euro's that have 278hp and these have the "log" style manifolds.
