In April I was fortunate enough to purchase "Ortolans" (from PeachParts) - 89 300ce with a 3.6L twin turbo engine.
Being that it was a Rhd, the initial intent was to put everything into a w124 sedan and do a e500/e60 clone. Then the other bad idea dawned on me to put it into a old Gwagon. The car was dismantled and the parts were put in storage.
That project was to follow the 93 w124 cabrio which I'm doing an Amg clone, which was supposed to be well under way long ago.
I'm still doing the cabrio, but I've decided to stop kidding myself about any other projects - I just don't have the time. So life is taking me in a slightly different direction with respects to "fun" vehicles. And I don't want to be storing/hording parts anymore.
That being said, the majority of the items I removed from the 89 twin turbo coupe with be available. The first being the twin turbo kit.
It's a deviated version of the Turbo Technics - twin turbo kit which was commissioned by an MB dealer in the UK. The regular version of this kit was to take a 3.2L M104 from it's 220hp to 345hp (at the crank). This set up was taking things a lot further.
Custom built M104.992 engine: -3558cc displacement (90.40mm bore, 92.40mm stroke) -
Forged CP pistons -
AMG C36 crankshaft -
Turbo Technics rods -
Ported & polished head -
Twin GT28RS turbochargers - (original turbos where Garrett T2)
I believe it was running 12psi of boost (vs 6psi)
One of the last dyno sheets had the engine putting down 400hp at the wheels.
The first time I drove the car, the day I received it, I lit up the parking lot at work and had a smile from ear to ear.
But there is/was a leak at the return lines from the turbo's where it taps the oil pan.
As well I would be it would be a safe time to do a head gasket.
The exhaust is also comes with the kit
My intent was to put it into a vehicle, but instead of running the standalone ecu, I was going to hook it up to the stock ecu with an additional injector controller. Which was more so the way the kit was originally intended.
For those who want to read up on the kits http://www.peachparts.com/shopforum/...n-reviews.html
The last kit I had which was in my old cabrio I sold about 4-5 years ago for $3000 (kit only) +shipping
This version would include the 3.6L spec engine, which has the CP pistons, and the head being P&P. I don't know where to place the price.
The engine/TT kit is located approx 45min west of Toronto.
