The best place to find an engine is inside a C32 AMG. You buy that one and sell your C240.

Of course, you could buy the C32 AMG, then pay a mechanic to swap over the engine, brakes, transmission, suspension, trim and badges to your old car. But what would be the point of that?

Ummmm, ... no.

"Not such a good idea" would be an understatement.

The only way this would ever be a good idea, is if you bought a scale model of an AMG car and put it in your glove compartment.

Just buy a true AMG, or hell, get it tuned by Brabus if you have the cash.

In that case, buy the C32 AMG, then just swap over the badges and aero kit so it looks like a C240. You might need to buy new C240 badges if you want to sell it. Unless you can find someone like yourself who wants to look good in a C32 AMG that goes like a C240.

well you can improve some power on the cheap by supercharging your engine. It wouldnt be that cheap but still more practical and cost efficient than trying to open mini-amg workshop in your backyard.

Fuel economy!! whats that??

Would you please go out to your garage for a minute and make sure you have a C240 and not a......oh, I dunno...Chevy Citation.
The only visual difference, lest ye pop the hood, is the badging. I understand the sleeper concept for maybe a Camaro or a 'Stang but an MB?
