Thread: SW newbie from the SF Bay Area

    Default SW newbie from the SF Bay Area

    Hi guys I'm Dyllon from the SF Bay Area. I own three 190e 2.3-16's, this one is from 1987. I'm in need of a barrel to repair a cracked inner on my OZ Racing AMG Aero 3 piece wheels. I've ended up here after a google search which turned up a for sale thread by one of your members and I need to PM him.

    Custom SS exhaust, 98db @wot, I will no longer pass the 92db sound limit at Laguna Seca but hey, it spits baby blue flames so it's all good!

    LOVE IT!! I have an 87 Cossie as well, not anywhere near the condition of yours... Are you using the stock engine with just exhaust mods?

    progress IS a slow process

    I recognize that screenname, you're on the 190rev with the smoke silver one painted white. Stick with it, you'll get there, my car wasn't great when I first got it either, this is how it looked when I first got it, freaking ugly and broken.

    My car at one time had an ECE motor I swapped in. The extra compression made great power and a hugely noticeable bump in torque. I let a track instructor drive my car and he threw a rod by shifting into 2nd instead of 3rd and I had gone over the dogleg with him repeatedly. So now I am back to a stock NAM engine. But I am building another ECE and moving forward with EFI conversion.

    Default Some updates; BBS on, new wheel project too

    Color matched my wings to the BBS RS wheels, from this...

    to this...

    Took a little trip out to the country. Only one stop light in the whole town, the rest were beautiful open roads.

    Car mileage milestones!

    Various shots

    Steering wheel collection

    Got new classic reissue plates. it's supposed to be drift-teen-v, rhyming with 16v. All people have been reading them as drift-envy, which is not that bad I guess since this car does rip up the drift events around here

    Why her name is "Dimples"

    Refinishing the OZ AMG wheels

    New wheel project, Stern Reverse Face-II
