High compression heads for Mog

There is an "important" message at the top from coachgeo that I am unable to open up the links it contains. I saw on another board that it contains the list of cars that have a high, relatively speaking, head that can be moved unto a 404. Also, is there any instructions out on the Internet for doing this. It seems there is no search ability here, I keep getting a message saying it is temporarily disabled.

Thanks for the help!

At the top of the thread where you found the dead link (/forum/mercedes/143224-popular-tech-search-queries.html) there is a description of how to still get the info these links use to take you too by using Google or the likes. Below is a copy

..... you can use Google Advance search and put Pirate4x4.com in the appropriate website to be searched box. This is labled Domain in Google. Of course fill in your SEARCH KEY CODE too. I've edited in the SEARCH KEY CODES below....

What is the satisfaction with those that have down the head conversion?

Significant increase in power, in fact it is the single best "bang for the buck" power upgrade you can do on the stock 2.2L

You will be raising your compression from 6.8-7.0 to 8.7-9.5 depending upon the cylinder head used. This equates on a dyno to about 12-15 hp, which on a motor with 90HP....is huge.

Make sure you get a good core....and definitely make sure your machine shop is familiar with MB aluminum heads and the fact that they usually need to be straightened BEFORE the machining process. We see a lot of cylinder heads destroyed by the bowtie hack who should never have been given the opportunity to machine the head. If in the Bay Area, Star Machine in Emeryville is your best bet for quality MB machine work.

Cheers,

Scott
