Mercedes-Benz M104 engine
I read the message further and discovered the subject of my attentions was to be a - my imagination then conjured images of something in the mould of a valve Evolution model, with equally tyre smoking potential from a heavily boosted M four-pot. So you can imagine my surprise when, a few days later, owner Jack Murray sent me a few shots of what appeared to be a very' tidy, but staunchly standard looking E 2.
Now, a 2. But a unique, turbo special? Well, I was intrigued The story of this car is actually entrenched in a little known, but very well respected conversion which was offered for the series in the late s and 90s. Turbo Technics may be better known for its Ford turbo conversions with Sierra 4x4, Capri and XR3i all subject to the Turbo Technics treatment back in the daybut through Mercedes-Benz dealer Hughes of Beaconsfield you could augment your with a twin-turbo kit developed to work with the M 3.
That the early - and heavier - E sported just 12bhp more and a much bigger price tag would surely seal the deal for many. Whilst a Cosworth would have been ideal, finding one proved tricky. Fate stepped in when a colleague decided to sell his 2. That was six years ago, and in the intervening years the has provided the kind of pleasurable motoring you would expect.
The next stage in the story came into play when the parts manager at Hughes of Beaconsfield decided to start offloading obsolete stock in This included a handful of leftover Turbo Technics kits that had never found a to call home.
Having watched the kits diminish in number, heading to places such as Spain, Germany and Bulgaria, eventually only one kit remained.
You can probably see where this is going. But as time went by, the thought of fitting the kit to the E started to percolate to the surface - after all, he liked the E, knew the car inside out, and research suggested the 2. Once you've tickled the turbos awake, boost and power build in a pleasingly linear fashion. The process wouldn't be without challenges, though.
For a start, the has a larger engine bay 1,mm wide versus 1,mm in theso squeezing a kit designed for the into the narrower E was always going to be an issue. The engine itself was treated to a rebuild, and being the only fitment of its kind, Jack had to fabricate a complete exhaust system from manifold to back box - but retained a near standard appearance. As the kit came with only partial electronics the joys of buying the last kit off the shelf! The results were impressive to say the least. The E returned with a smooth running engine delivering a whopping bhp and lb ft of torque.
Job done. Well, almost. Under full boost the four-speed automatic transmission was slipping slightly, so the modulating pressure was cranked up a notch, which stopped the slip and makes for a more positive - albeit harsher - gear change. And so on a sunny Sunday in April yes, such things do exist! You will have noticed by now that there has been no mention of upgrades to the chassis, brakes, tyres or steering to cope with the power - all are the same spec as they left the factory in It's perversely amusing trying to judge when and where the will be able to cope with full throttle.
Of course, starting with a Sportline model gets things off to a flier - the 22mm lower suspension, quicker steering and lower profile tyres improving body control and dynamic response.
Jack has considered adding a limited-slip differential, and has treated the 2.
The engine is quiet, the custom exhaust a little boomy around the 2,rpm mark - something Jack intends to resolve.The Mercedes-Benz M is a straight-6 automobile engine produced from through It has a double overhead cam design with 4 valves per cylinder. It replaced the M and was replaced by the M V6 starting in The M continued in production until where its last use by Mercedes-Benz was in the W chassis.

A larger intake crossover pipe, freer flowing exhaust, a unique intake camshaft, minor changes to the cylinder head, and modifications to the HFM fuel computer also contribute to the increase in power.

It's an 88 E, originally a 2. Runs the OE It's running MS2e V3. Trigger is via an OE on the crank from a later model M Really cool, any power numbers? I'm going to be msing my 2. Won't be nearly as quick, but I cant bring myself to pull out the 16v. I don't think it was his thing to get it dynoed but it's running my tune so it should be between whp and about that in wtq.
My end goal is to rid the world of the scourge that is CIS-E with liberal application of megasquirt. A Cossie would just be magical with EFI. If I had one it would be the second thing I did to it after a set of ground control coils.
The stuff is easy as pie to wire and all his stuff works as factory except for AC. He just has a switch but I'm trying to figure out how it communicated with the cis ecu. That would make the conversion appear entirely OE. I agree on the cis. I'm currently converting my to ms2 as well.

From some angles the car looks like just another stance-pleasing creation.
For me personally, the recent car features on Speedhunters have been some of the most interesting ever shown on the site. Not just because of the the extreme nature of the builds, but also down to the discussion which some of these machines have provoked.
Immediately I want to buy a car from the s and incorporate a pair of upswept exhaust tips into the build. When it came to the promotion of creativity, Gatebil was a very positive experience.
Alex kindly brought his car along to the event where it sat on the Speedhunters stand for a weekend that was full of awesome. What anyone at all thinks of your car should not be important. As long as you are enjoying the build and the resulting driving experiences which come as part and parcel of creating these automotive dreams, then surely that is all that matters?
Predictability Is Dead: The Turbo Mercedes 190
It seems to me that the Scandinavians are far too busy building, driving and having fun with their cars to give a single care about anything else at all. I really do love Scandinavia! This is a serious forced induction device, and that Holset HX52 turbo is surely too big for a year old? Which kind of got me thinking…. Personally, I just cannot get overly excited about builds that incorporate parts that have been brought together for the sake of box ticking.
Predictability in the automotive world, and of course life in general, is tedious. In its current guise, this Mercedes is not going to set the fastest time around a race track or lay down record-breaking quarter mile times. The build of this E is in its infancy. And, much like his car, Alex too is at the beginning of a very long and exciting automotive life of adventure. In my short time as a Speedhunter I have enjoyed the experience of encountering cars at different stages of their life.
Some have seen a few much action and abuse, some are unfinished and a handful of cars have literally just been completed. Like many, Alex had worked hard to get his car complete for the Gatebil event. Hopefully the motor will ensure that the business end of the Merc gets peppered in track debris during its next outing at Gatebil.
The project started in September for Alex and he has been in the garage working on his creation almost every night. In January his daily BMW got sold to release some money so that he could carry on with the build he was passionate about. Everything has been a massive learning curve for this dedicated car creator.
At the beginning the had an M Obviously it was really slow, and to make the car even less cool it even had a tow bar. The only time Alex used that tow bar was when he bought the new engine that you see in the bay now. The new M So was it hard to install?
Well this was the first time Alex has ever built a motor and, like anything I guess, in the beginning it was a challenge. But, everything is possible if you really want to achieve it. The car itself has been rebuilt from scratch.
