!!! ok, which is the overall best eninge for my 1992 190e, i have a 2.3l 8v and really really bored w/ it, yea it does the sickest donuts and only spins tires in reverse, what should i swap to get the best performance, i want to start racing people. i was thinking the stock cosworth engine or maybe the 2.0l sportline....even if i can save up to get the amg engine but i dont know about the last one....which one is better the cosworth or the 2.0l sportline???? i want an engine that can put me in the lower 15 seconds on the quater mile...maybe a nice 14 second pass wouldnt be bad, but i doubt that would happen...any suggestions??? i want the most performance for the cheapest prices also where can i find the engine you guys request???....

p.s. i was thinking of having my uncle who happends to be a fabricator/welder....maybe he can set me up w/ a custom set-up for a volvo turbo, seeing the amg one is like 2200(usd) ill just pull the volvo turbo off a junkyard car.... any and all replys would be great

-Thanks guys

Cheap ol engine, cheap ol tranny. Installation can be done by the owner. The shops don't have to do everything. So thats 800 for just the parts. Labor was probably all done by hand. And why are you going to question a 4 year old thread jbmbusa probably wont answer you lol.

well. you can get a nice Nissan motor for about 1300-1600 thats putting out an easy 250HP with a turbo as well. comes with all the goodies you need. expect motor mounts. those obviosly have to be custom. and the the other grand you can have someone install it.
