First, remove the air filter, then procede to remove the mechanical injector and the fuel distributor.
Airflow sensor plate is not needed any more. Remove it, and fix moving part beneath with a plastic strap.
To install the injectors, insert them in to the new fuel rail, then proceed to bend the two metal brackets of the rail and drill an hole on each bracket to insert the screw that will hold it to the intake manifold.
Before drilling, take the correct measurements and double check that the injectors are fully inserted in their housings.
Ensure to hermetically seal the start injector housing with a metal plate and RTV Silicone gasket. (Arexons Motorblack is recommended)
You can also use a rubber tube with the external diameter of the start injector housing and then bolt a screw onto it to hermetically seal it.
Caution! Double check the EGR pipings. If any air leaks from the circuit, you will have issue with the idle.
Fuel lines and filter
Now it's time to install the new fuel lines.
The metal cylinder with three fittings is a fuel filter combined with a pressure regulator, you will need to get rid of the old original one.
- The delivery line that goes from the fuel pump is connected to the "IN" fitting.
- The return line that goes back to the tank is connected directly to the unnamed central fitting.
- The main line that goes to the fuel rail is connected to the "OUT".
Use the the three black junctions provided with the kit to connect the rubber line to the filter/pressure regulator and ensure that they are properly mounted.
After the fuel lines are installed, turn on and off the ignition (without powering the starter) 5-6 times, to build pressure in the fuel lines.
Check carefully for any leaks.
Idle valve is left connected to the stock ECU.
Before installing it, clean it internally with throttle body cleaner and lubricate it with oil. Don't use WD40 as it is not a lubricant.
MAP sensor location is really important to ensure a good engine operation. Locate MAP sensor exactly as shown on photo.
Drill 13mm hole for the sensor and 8mm for the bolt that will secure it. Cover the drill tip with grease to catch the debris, it is reccomended to clean the intake manifold after drilling the hole to ensure that no metal debris is left in it.
Seal hole with a sealant. Sufficient sealing paste must be applied because the surface of the intake manifold is rough.
Secure sensor with included screw. Apply sealant to the thread, to prevent air leaks and unscrewing.
Never install any sensor with the wires upwards, water will flow off the cable and shortcircuit the sensor.
It is prohibited to install MAP sensor in place of cold start injector.
ECU and wiring
Disconnect battery when working with the electrical system. Connect battery back only when engine have to be started.
ECU is dust and splashproof. It cannot withstand continuous water contact or pressurized water, so it is reccomended to install it in a dry and safe place. Do not install ECU with cable upwards. In this case, water and moisture will flow off the cable into ECU.
Wire colors are subject to change. If wires have text labels - use labels to identify wire purpose.
Wiring harness for 4 and 6 cyl engines is unified. On a 4cyl engine you will not connect 5th and 6th cylinders.
The best spot to install the ECU is next to the stock unit. Stock ECU location:
- W124 - under the hood next to the battery
- W126 - front passenger legs compartment
Pull required wires from the harness. All wires should be connected in parallel to the original ones, otherwise it will be explicitly mentioned.

Stock Mercedes IAC controller is working fine, you can leave it as is. If you want to control IAC valve with Invent - disconnect the wire from the stock ECU and connect it to the IDLE wire.
Only 2-wire idle valve is supported. For 3-wire valve, external circuit is needed. For more information, look into additional info section at the end of the document.
Make sure to disconnect the lambda from the stock ECU to avoid interference.
If you don't have lambda sensor, or your sensor is malfunctioning, you should install universal Bosch sensor 0258986507 or 0258006537
- white wires - to the lambda heating connector, or to the fuel pump supply
- black - signal to the ECU
- gray - to the ECU ground
Connect the EXT wire to the gas supply valve, turn on the LPG mode by EXT input in the settings. Now the ECU will adapt to work on gas fuel.
If you have a carburetted LPG system - you do not need to cut the power of gasoline injectors. Check Turn off injection option and fuel will be cut by the signal from the EXT.
Connect EXT wire to the air conditioner clutch wire. It is used for maintaining idle RPM while air conditioner is operating.
Normally, you will use Bluetooth interface to connect to the ECU. In rare cases, BT connection is unreliable, so you can use K-Line instead.
To connect K-Line cable, you should prepare 3 wires:
Pinout of the K-Line cable:
Pinout of the car OBD2 connector
There are other wires, not mentioned in this manual. They are reserved for future use. Isolate and hide unused wires into the harness.
