Nearly everything.

Most notably, the AMG has 3 piece heads built in house by AMG. Their own custom intake, solid lifters as opposed to hydraulic cams etc, etc.. They're Very different beasts.

Why do you ask??

Ahhh, the gift of giving (sharing)...

Happy Holidays!

wow stumbled across this today, while I am in the process of buying a popped 420 W126, fast forward this afternoon I was at an old independent garage in SFL today and spied two AMG Heads with Intake, propreitor is going to shoot me an offer to purchase in the morning. He confirmed they came off a 560 SEL. the engine was built by AMG Chicago and was intalled by BHMA back in the day.

If you could send this manual to:

I would greatly appreciate it.

Did anyone around the globe manage to get a PDF copy of this original AMG 32v engine manual (77pages) sent to them back in 2009

I have a friend in Australia who has secured a RHD 32v original documented AMG coupe from overseas to be imported and getting a PDF copy of this manual would highly desirable (he does not go on forums)
Please PM me if you were one of the lucky ones who got a copy
