Quote from: "john skene"Depending upon how bad your emissions are, and what the specifications you have to meet for the early smog regulation cars in the USA, there is a slight improvement you can use, but it may not be enough. Use a catalytic converter, drop the spark timing back a degree or two, and tune slightly lean. You will need the retarded spark to reduce the burning temperature i.e.to reduce the nitrous oxides, slightly lean to have enough oxygen to burn the CO to CO2. A lot of work which may not give you the results you need. Remember that Mercedes initially used low compression and an air pump to meet the initial USA regulations.
Quote from: "Denis"Hi styriaAre any americans in our group to investigate "legal" workarounds ? Maybe an exception collector car status ?

Quote from: "Denis"What a "classy" avatar you have ! . . . I am pretty new to an active involvement in W116.org but I am a reasonably trusting person. My dealer is pretty good and I can probably get some deals as I talk. So with a bit of support (private email please as every case is different), I will offer to anyone on THIS list to send them EURO components from France upon agreement.
