3 years and still going strong.
We crazy Finns go to garage when boring winter starts and come out next summer with something crazy like this.
This is my 280SE -77 with a bit of surprise under the hood.
-Eaton M90 supercharger, 1bar / 14psi of boost (used to be 12 psi)
-Reground cams, 280 degrees
-Ported and polished head
-2.5" exhaust with 1 silencer
-Custom water-to-air IC with own water circulation
-Reinforced automatic transmission
-Modified K-Jetronic with Micro Dynamics PIC5 additional injector driver
-Oil coolers for AT and engine oil
-And STOCK pistons & rods
-Sleeper looks with towbar etc.
-16" Rial mesh rims with 245/45 and 225/50 Michelin Pilot Sports
-Completely stripped and repainted few years ago
I can explain more if somebody wants to know about this car / wants to supercharge another W116.
Things to do:
Ditch that tow bar
Some minor fiddling (stereo system, nothing too "bling", polish rims etc.)
Fabricate upholstery to trunk
Minor electrical problems, ie. tachometer doesn't work.
Engine bay needs some tidying up
So what do you guys think?
