I'll come back with more details later But yes, I will try to build up a turbo engine or a turbo/kompressor engine. But I think I will need to change alot of parts, so I'm not sure about the total price yet. dont know about the ECU yet, he will come back to me next week with more information.So you are building up a 230 turbo to put in your SLK? Who made the kit? Expensive??? What about ECU stuff? Cmon man, details!!!!
You mean ECU? What is the ibg issue there? I need to see what the totalt cost is gonna be and what really needs to be done. First I need to see if there's something to do with the Kompressor/Turbo issue, I couldI like the idea. Hope it can be made to talk to ECM
Keep us informed along the way.
Hehe, you must wait until the summer come I got the wheels today and they are right here next to meWhere did you get the SLR wheels? I would like to see them on your car.
I asked the seller for more information but have not yet heard back. Maybe there is someone on this forum lives in Maryland could go check it out and get the scoop. I know I'm interested.I found this on ebay..turbocharged slk320 (only one?) anyone? turbo 230 0r 320 ? pictures?
I guess you could build a fuel holding tank separate from your fuel system. basically it's pressurized by the turbine, the pressure tank runs a line to the intake throttle body or to each port. the line sprays a jetted mist to feed the motor extra fuel. It's really simple. but the next problem is pulling out timing on this cars' ecu..+1 on the fuel maps. To really uncork that setup you'd need highly modified chips (and I don't know that anyone has figured out how to reprogram the M.B. ones properly) or a standalone EMS (big $$$ for a good one). . . Or another solution (I know of a good one, but it's a trade secret. . .).
It's completely doable, it's always just a question of time and money. You could easily custom-design a system, figure out the piping bends required, mounting locations, etc. and have it built. It isn't rocket science as far as the hardware (turbocharging is actually very simple). The kicker is getting it to do its magic without running you into the limits of your fuel delivery system and running you lean. Lean operation and high boost levels make bad things happen. Quickly.
Of course, a very simple and elegant solution to the "extra fuel" problem was devised by Reeves Callaway back in the early 1980s. It doesn't even require fuel map reprogramming. If you do your homework, you too can learn this "black art of the turbo". . . I won't hand out the answers here, but I'll just say there's more than one way to get more fuel into the cylinders than through the existing injectors. . . .
