On the M119 the R/16 resistor is on the left fender well just ahead of the firewall in a cluster of other wired sensors. Problem is, it doesn't actually say R/16 on it.

Do a search for "Free Horsepower W124" and you'll find the legnthy original thread. At the end of the thread, tkd_119 posted a very nice picture of this resistor's location in the M119 engine compartment. It sounds like the benefits are most noticable in the early W124 6 Cyl. cars, so it may or may not help you much. I'm working on a tank of gas with it removed to see if mileage is increased, but I honestly can't feel much performance increase in my E420.
