    Same guy with the E320 did a rear mount turbo for his friend.

    Oil feed setup. There are 12x1.5mm aux. bolts in all Mercedes since 1980 for oil accessories. Makes feeding the turbo easy and simple.

    Big 10 AN drain hose, excessive but the pump can handle it.

    Oil pressure is obviously not a problem

    A shot of the intake and turbosetup. 3" Silicon flexi-tube, a NOS flexible intake I got from Tweeks for a 944 Turbo. Wrapped in heat tape just be safe. He drove it hard on his 740 mile trip back home so it's gonna last a while. Exhaust is wrapped and I used worm clamps because I don't trust stainless ties to stay secure at 160mph Click here to enlarge.

    A shot that shows the airfilter and MAF location. He drove the 74 0miles in a bad rain storm nearly the whole way and didn't have a problem.

    I'm not a big fan of rear mount turbos but I respect what went into this. Seems the tuning was solved with an AEM piggyback.

    I think I've met him. He's in LA.

    You'll probably want to get a tuner...
