After researching aftermarket air intakes for my 1982 300D, I realized the stock air intake my son removed from his 2006 Honda S2000 looked very similar. I removed the stock air cleaner, and the S2000 intake fit right on! I'll take a photo tomorrow and see if I can include it. The intake consists of a simple plastic tube, about 24 inches long and with a 90 degree bend, at the end of which is a conical paper filter. I used the original Mercedes clamp to attach it to the turbo inlet, along with the original spacer ring. This is a MUCH more elegant design than the stock setup, but only time will tell how well it works. Here is my question: I ran a hose from the PCV vent in the valve cover DIRECTLY TO the air inlet tube, about 3 inches from the turbo inlet - is this OK? I have not yet installed an oil separator or catch can. I'm not sure if this is a recipe for trouble, since alot of oil vapor will be going directly into the turbo. Any advice will be appreciated.
