DAIMLER-BENZ 2.3 LITRE, 16-VALVE HIGH-PERFORMANCE ENGINE

Daimler-Benz has developed a high performance version of the proven 2.3-litre, 4-cylinder, M102 gasoline engine for the 190E 2.3-16 sport sedan which incorporates a number of the most advanced design features, including a light-alloy cross-flow cylinder head with dual overhead camshafts and four valves per cylinder, roof-shaped combustion chambers with centrally located spark plugs, electronically/mechanically controlled fuel injection system with air by-pass at the injection valves, electronically controlled ignition and idle speed, and a single poly V-belt drive. These elements resulted in an engine with high torque and high horsepower over the entire rpm range and which still offers favorable fuel consumption at the same time. The engine with its 10.5:1 compression ratio also meets ECE 15/04 emission regulations.
