Thread: Brown Benz (M104-Megasquirt)

  1. Is that sorta trial and error? At the moment, my 2.6 with EFI does fine with the stock 9" clutch (LUK kit so I think it's a Sachs disc) but if I did a 3.0 or 3.2 M104 I wonder if it wouldn't be enough. As you've pointed out, I probably don't want to do business with the manufacturer that made your clutch, but what other options are there?

    I am somewhat considering using a BMW 6-speed manual for whatever I throw in this car next though, so I would have more options then.

  2. nvm it works now, must've been a 1 day glitch or something, do you have part numbers for the clutch, pressure plate and flywheel combo?

    Little update, now that its nice in western NY and I'm driving the car again. Deleted the cassette holders in favor of a simple plate with mounts for a tablet.

    Got a bluetooth module for the MS3X and connected via megasquirt. Also hooked to the radio for spotify and navigation. Basically like having android auto. Hard wired a Micro USB adapter behind the plate and 3D printed some simple mounts which bolt through and allow the tablet to be easily removed.

    Sweet! Good to know that you can do that! Are there minimum requirements for the tablet to run that software??

    Also, looks like I will be going megasquirt route! I've had enough of this bs! hahaha

    Does that give you an RPM readout as well?

    Sure does. Basically anything you can do in Tunerstudio you can do with the full version of MS Droid.

    I'm running an old Kindle Fire HD that I flashed with some Cyanogenmod stock Android software. It's really not up to the task. I'll probably buy a used Nexus 7 tablet with a little more power and more stable software.

    Awesome! You should run it on a VR headset! hahahah.

    I would be interested in making a fold away system in the glovebox maybe.

    That's pretty impressive! I should just make a carbon cluster insert with a cut out for a smart phone or tablet and there it is!

    An old smartphone would work great too. I thought about that with a data plan and mobile hotspot lol... turn the 190 into a Starbucks.

    Just an update, the car is sold! Yes after so many years and so many miles, I actually sold it to a very close friend of mine. I started a new job last year and had to relocate to Chicago where four cars is just out of the question. That being said, I am still involved with the continuation of the build. It is currently getting an SLK 6-Speed and a low mileage motor has been acquired for assembling the predictable next stage... turbo setup.

    I do have another benz project though
