'Scuse my ignorance but what's the difference? Any idea what 'gen' the Mercedes M62 is? That has a teflon type coating on the rotors.
Also does anyone have any pics or links of porting these things? Looking at it, there doesn't seem to be very much you can do to it?
Tia, Mikki x
the "generation" is not determined by the model. well.. it is.. but it's not
the M62, has several "generations" that it has gone through. Gen 1 was very inefficient.. large gaps between rotors & casing, poor flow-paths, etc... Gen 2 has teflon coated rotors & better airflows... Gen 3.. is getting more towards the bomb-diggity... etc...
as for porting, you can open up/smooth the airflow paths on the inlets/outlets... get rid of those sharp transitions, etc...
Swingwing -> I do NOT have a gen2.. i cheaped out and got a gen1... very plentiful, and i think i paid like $100 shipped for the charger when it was all said & done... bought it with piping & crap.. sold all the extra stuff...
btw, i've got pics of my car, what it has in it.. where it is.. (and more importantly, where it is NOT now... ) just getting them hosted & will post when i have them available.
