This is a brand new turbo and the model has been used in the Volvo 850 2-litre export model with 210 hp @ 5000 rpm. It has an internal wastegate and an internal bypass valve.The Volvo engine hasa 4-valve head so the mercedes M102 would require nore boost or revs to achieve that power level. The new manifold will be a simpler and sturdier log style manifold with worse flow than the earlier 4-2-1 manifold. The new downpipe will have a flexible joint. I hope this turbo is stronger than the earlier K03 which propably overrevved. At leat the flow chart looks more generous. This turbo also has watercooling so it needs a few water lines to draw.
I'm looking for suspension parts and have so far found used anti roll bars from a 190E 2.3-16. thanks to Henkseli at Mersuforum.net. I've also found used front springs from a 190E 2.5-16 AMG via our Spare Part Search. Once again dismantler Eriksson from Pietarsaari delivered me swiftly good parts. The springs are approx. 40% stiffer than my standard 190E springs. I'm looking for front control arms but they are hard to find on a budget. My intention is to change the whole suspension and axles to the 16-valve specs using W124 parts. The EPC net online database from Daimler AG is a great help in this job.
