I'm kinda curious though while you have it, what's the engine rpm in 5th at like 70? I know on the 94 E320 we have, it churns at like ~2800 at about that speed. I wonder if lower rpms would yield better gas mileage.
Since its a 1987, does that mean that it is a conversion? I thought it was only 1986 and 88 they brought over the very limited supply of manuals.
If you still have it by the end of the summer and the funds are in order I might highly consider it but no promises.
