M272 3.6 V6 Engine compatibility? R350...
This question spans multiple models so I hope this is the right section. Short story is, my engine is blown in my 06 R350. What M272 V6's can I source for a used replacement? Obviously I won't consider an 06 as mine died due to a combination of balance shaft and intake manifold failures (flaps broke apart), so I want to avoid the balance shaft issue.
I've been searching and can't find the info. I thought I saw somewhere that ML M272 3.5 V6's are drop in, but I'm not sure of the year range? How about R350s even? Can I use a 2010 or 2011? There are E and I believe C classes with the 3.5 M272, would any of those work?
Thanks in advance...
