    Hi & Welcome

    I had one of those Vibe sub/amp set-ups in my car but found it a bit quiet, and that was in a clio. Id imagine it would be even worse in a saloon, I'd advise you to have a look at some RE Audio subs, give them a clean 1000w (vibe equipment may say 1000w+ on the box but it is just a peak figure) and they REALLY sing, even in a saloon without a ski hatch.

    Love those merc cossies though, got any pics?

    Looking very nice, I'd be tempted by the 2.5 version. Do the 2.3's not rust or has it been cured? Did you get it on the strip at pod?

    Quickest version except for the 3.2 AMG model and limited run of 502 EVO 1 and EVO2 models are the 2.5 16...
    The 2.6 is a good all rounder, more of a mile eater and not all that quick...
    If you want a raw and revy motor it has to be the 2.3, the 2.5 version is more refined and only the first 1989 G reg 2.5's had the cosworth head...
    Thereafter mercedes produced the head using the blueprints from cosworth, my head has "coscast" stamped on it...

    The 2.3 16 is quick can rev upto 8,000rpm with the limiter removed but the limiter is set at around 7,500rpm...
    This is a four pot while the 2.6 is a 6 pot so doesnt have that raw feel...
    Its all down to what you prefer....
    Being 1986 this is one of the early ones and is very solid but most are rotten mine is only solid because it been waxoiled and looked after...
    There are some dogs out there so you have to be careful when looking for one...
    Both the 2.3 and 2.5 are good engines but I prefer the 2.3, 2.5's also rust (jacking points and so on) but not as bad as a 2.3 would...

    Im thinking of chaning my wheels for some EVO 2/R129 SL wheels as they were fitted to those...
