Eddie,

Some of the Mosselman kits used the Albrex and others used the SN series Paxton. TDI, the company in England, uses a SN series Paxton http://www.tdi-plc.com/Merc500SEC.SELclass.html My first blower kit was a Mosselman that used the Paxton. The poor design of the Mosselman kit prompted me to build my own kit that was much higher quality.

The Mosselman/TDI kit is only good for around 300 hp and no more. My kit is good for upwards of 600 hp, estimated, with an aftermarket engine management system or around 450 to 500 using the stock CIS.

Eddie,

The turbocharger unit in that picture is not for a 500 or a 560 motor. You would have a very difficult time fitting one in a 560 or 500 due to space limitations.

I know...i would rather have a supercharger too, but it just looks interesting. I have seen 2 sels with turbos, but no close up pictures of the engine. just wondering how they fit it, and whether or not they are really 117 engines.

Some company in Australia makes a twin turbo kit, although I don't have the link anymore.

I guess you could do a twin turbo system with both turbos to the right side of the engine. You would have to route the drivers side exhaust all the way to the passenger side and then either mount them sequentially, parallel, or a single turbo. It would be very tight but it may fit. You'd probably need to move the radiator reservoir so it wouldn't melt. I have seen the single turbo set-up but you would get some serious lag.

I like turbos but they are very costly to build in comparison to a supercharger system. I chose my route to keep costs down in relation to actual hp returns. I did talk to some tuners about a twin-turbo system but they wanted $30,000 with half up-front and the rest upon completion.

The only limits on my system are fueling. I'm planning on addressing that issue in the future. However, for now, my car is getting a complete paint job with an upgrade to the Euro headlights. The interior will also be redone after the paint job is finished.
