hahah, ya but think of it as the life blog of this W124



Any ways, the project ran me thin on time, it was a WIP all the time.



I know i will regret this, but if i free up later on, i know exactly what i need to do and how it should be done, and the install wont take me more than a day.



You said it ur self in another thread, you don't even want to drive behind your car so as not to know if its smoking or not.

"that sucks about burning oil, the answer to that is dont follow your car and watch and youl never know! im not sure if my one is but it doesnt use any on the dipstick and i cant see smoke in the rear view, apart from this one time when i was parked up at the whalf in aucks haha jks

cars goin alright tho, but like you its always a work in progress, still cant get enough fuel, i have to wire in the injectors individually to the greddy for better control and get a map sensor, this is the next project,
but when its going good she hauls pritty well, i ment to do the wiring this week at night, but its already at Thursday doh, and i goin out on my mx bike all weekend, so maaaayyyyb next week,"


My car ran great in its last couple of months, yet it broke a ring while i had no knock nor was it even close to being lean. That really was what got me reconsidering the whole thing, maybe i used a bit more water in my alcohol mix than i should have (mind u i never went over 70% alcohol, 30% water), maybe it was the age of this engine. Add to that the work need to go to a single setup and the fact that to keep the turbo i needed a gearbox rebuild. i dont care much abt spending money, as long as i can afford it, but an expected bill of almost 4000USD on a 1992 W124 is an eye opener. Things just added up and i needed to step back and take a break. I know I will go turbo again on this car, but this time I will have everything ready.
