Re: 190E 2.3 Cosworth

I would do some serious research before considering a transplant. That Cosworth motor uses ancient Bosch CIS injection, so unless you're getting all the electronics to make it go, you're either adapting that or doing some exciting fabrication. Also, while the 16v M102 was pretty neat back in its da...

Re: 190E 2.3 Cosworth

- thesameguy, What I'm thinking on would be more of a transplant of the entire engine rather then a mesh of the two engines. I was able to get the engine from the original owner for $600 a kid ran a stop sign and totaled the rear, if was going to scrap it. -DAReese I have thought about the FOLVO swa...

Just curious. ..
Very close to a clone on a budget, so a decently paired turbo turbo exhaust etc.. for now but in time I'm very positive I will race it. At that point more modification would come based off of what works best at that point.

190E 2.3 Cosworth

The opportunity has come up to purchase a running 190E Cosworth engine for well under 1k. Of course with this price its beyond tempting. But how compatible would this be? From my reading the block it just a regular Mercedes block. Would it be best to just purchase the head.

Re: Suspension upgrades?

Everything I'm finding drops the car, I don't really want to do that. If anything I'm looking for more of a stiffer spring at either stock height, or a wee bit higher. More of a rally stance. Any suggestions? Whats the price range you're thinking? Very good suspension is available....inverted 40mm ...

Sadly another bits the dust (Stinger Performance)

Stinger Performance is out of the center header business :( Thanks for your order. Unfortunately we are out of headers and have made the decision to discontinue the header because of all of the Chinese copycats that currently exist. We will still carry the header accessories (oil lines, wastegates, ...

Re: Vancouver Mechanic

Been thinking about getting my car towed somewhere so I can finally drive it. Anyone know someone experienced with Merkurs in the lower mainland? The closer to Tsawwassen the better. I also have tools, beer money and free time if there's an amateur willing to help me out. I just really want to emba...
