You know, i would like to know too, i have not gotten my self a set of Bosio, but i just cant afford $48.99 for one nozzle, that's $244.95 for five that's w/o tax and shipping, could be over $300 for nozzles after tax and shipping!!!!... Monark are good and way cheaper than Bosio and way better than Bosch. That's my opinion

I only know what I have read about Bosio Nozzles. There was a Post last year where A member had 1 nozzle go bad; but Bosio said it was the fuel he was using (he was not using Diesel). I don't follow that logic as the rest of his Injectors had no problems. Perhaps that Member will read this an Post his comments.

Another member Posted that Bosio had a spat of quality control issues.

But of the actual Bosio users that I have read except for the 1 Member the comments are that they make slightly more noise but they feel the give them more power/response (have not read any Dyno tests).
Not related to Mercedes but VW TDI fans seem to like the ones they make for those Engines.

I have more experience with Bosch Nozzles working in a shop than anything else but only up until 1980. In the 5 years I worked in a Fuel Injection Shop I saw the quality of the Bosch Nozzles drop some. This was when they were still being made in Germany or France.
Compared to those Bosch Nozzles I tested back then and the couple of sets of Bosch (made in Brazil) Nozzles I have run in my Volvo since 1992 I can say that out of the box the quality of the Monark Nozzles is higher in every respect than the Bosch Nozzles.
Last month I bought a set of 6 Monarks for a 617 and put them in my 6 cyl Volvo Diesel (I did not tell C Sean Watts what I was going to use them for). I achieved no big difference except that my idle is quieter.

I bought a used set of 5 Injectors as the price was right on Ebay and 4 of the Injectors have Bosio Nozzles. However, they are not the ones for a Turboed Engine which is what I would need.

Sorry I cannot be more helpful.

I can get the correct ones. Just let me know. I have some for VW and Volvo on the way, sold out last week. Also, Nissan...

I wanted to experiment.
I have read of people putting the VW Rabbit type nozzles in Mercedes so I thought I would try it the other way around.
Other then the quieter idle I do not notice any differance.
I had previously used VW Rabbit Bosch nozzles (made in Brazil) in the Volvo (the Enigine is made by VW). But the last set I had in was made in Italy by 7 Diesel (that is what the seller told me but there is no country marked on the part or package).

Are the VW and Volvo nozzles also Monarks?
