Quietest Tires

In need of a new set soon. I've been looking at Michelin Defenders for cutting back some of the road noise at speed. Has anyone had a very quiet set of tires they recommend?

I didn't even think of or consider storage down there! That is something I'll really think into. Having the 300D and my motorcycle down there would be a dream.

Ah! Dang. The 78' runs great, but the rest of the car is falling apart. Well this is a good excuse for new nozzles. What do you guys recommend? Bosio or Monark?

Are OM617 injectors universal?

Swap from 78' Non-turbo to 84' Turbo? My neighbor is an old diesel mechanic and kindly rebuilt the 78's injectors. Can I do the old switcharoo?

That's some massively high mileage, impressive, how many miles have you put on the car? I'm no expert either, but if the valves were resealed, it could be now putting more pressure on the rings.

Urgent. 81' Cylinder Head with SLS pump. Transferable?

I just drove a good three hours for a cylinder head. It's replacing the head off a 78 non turbo. This head I'm looking at has the SLS pump attached. Is there a possibility I could still use it?
