Hello everyone,
I am willing to install the following to my 97 C230 running 0.38 ~ 0.42 bar. But my only consideration if I am missing something from the install. This is the following offer I got from a local tuner, so please -/+ feedback the engine has 190K Kms but never was abused and runs great no oil loss at all....

- Garrett T3 .42/.48 Ratio.(refurbished from a late model Volvo)
- Custom fabricated turbo exhaust manifold.
- Stainless steel piping.
- Front mount Intercooler (refurbished from a RX7)
- FMU adjustable and boost sensitive.
- Steel Oil feed and return lines.
- VDO Boost gauge with black face that displays "vacuum/boost" in psi.
- VDO Air/Fuel ratio meter.
- Sport cone air filter.(No name brand can't find K&N Distributor)
- 2 deg. cooler spark plugs.

I also want to ask if crome-ing the engine cover (like turboBenz) the turbo & piping downgrades the system or causes it to overheat???

Your best man for some info is Koolvin as he installed an after market monster turbo on his C class. Also Mark300 is very knowledgable on this subject witrh his 1000bhp civic:crazy:
