RE: v8 ???

Anything is possible if you have the money. There a lot of tuners out there doing conversions.

RE: v8 ???

Not very likly. To fit a mercedes V8 into a C24 would require that the body of the car be modified. Amd alot of work done to the car. Also matting a 6 speed tranny to any mercedes benz is VERY difficult. So im calling BS on this one.

Dude has a C240 with a 2.4liter, 140hp or so and maby has the 6 speed. It was offered with the 240.

Well, anything can be done, but...
I know it varies from state to state, but in Ca. where I live, I see a lot of kids modify cars and are very upset at their next smog inspection...
