Just found someone local who can supply the ECU & tune the EFI. Heís even familiar with the early Benz engines!! Gotta get lucky sometimes...

Hopefully this should bring down the costs for me & subsequent conversions.

I may convert to EFI first then fit the new manifold. That will also give a good comparison of the new manifolds capabilities...

Attached picture is from a W124 300CE V8 conversion & I believe the engine was sold to an enthusiast in WA. Mine should be similar if not even better!

I now have sources for EFI & ECU equipment. The only think left is the coils & where to mount them. Hopefully the engine will be more economical with more power through more accurate fuel delivery & greater control on advance over a wider range. From there itís onto the manifold, which will hopefully unleash much bigger hp/torque gains across the whole rev range (not just peak revs) with flatter curves on the dyno charts.

Hereís a new pic of what I believe is a replica of Red Pigs twin throttle manifold. It appears to be carbon fibre. Note the manual trans attached to the engine...



While Iím at it a pic of the boot & fuel supply:

You can never have too many tools!! I had to alter my planned technique due to the complexity & depth of the injector holes...

Finally measured the injector centrelines, so I can get the fuel rails machined up! Ordered some additional parts for fabrication & waiting on the delivery... slowly, slowly!!

I’ll think I’ll test the EFI on the stock manifold before I try the custom one to confirm & quantify the benefits!
