What should you do if your Mercedes 190E (W201) still looks good but the inline-four is getting long in the tooth? Tuning Kingz Shop in Poland solved that problem by using an engine from a Mercedes 230 Kompressor (W202). They replaced the 190E’s tired 1.8 L M102 inline-four that made 107 horsepower with the supercharged 2.3 L M111 inline-four from the C230 that makes 190 horsepower. The goal is to bump that up to 226+ horsepower with some extra boost and tuning. Combine that with new brakes, suspension, interior work, paint detailing, and you get a really nice Mercedes.

Hey, first. Very nice Car!!!
My Question, how call the Body Kit ?
What kind of engine mounts where used in this swap? Im thinking of doing a swap like this myself 🙂
Hi Martin. Unfortunately I do not know. I recommend contacting the builder for that information.
I make 1112230804 and 6012231404 replica mounts you will need
Just type the part numbers into ebay
Maybe a little late but w124 (m111) mounts works like lego
Love this build – I drive a ‘99 Kompressor, so I’m especially happy to see its power plant at the heart of the car that made it all possible 🙂
what seats are those? and how hard was it to integrate them into the 190?
If you do this you need old mounts that are hard to find
Luckily i make replicas
Email me or go to ebay
Have lots of happy customers
