your answer

...that 3-pointed star... :)<br> <br> I am guessing it's attributed to numerous factors. 1) the mbz aftermarket for truely insane monsters is not quite as hot as say supercharging a BMW or a VW. Most people buy benzos because of the stigma surrounding the company as well as the luxurious ride.<br> <br> 2) Fixing an mbz is really expensive especially if you happen to improperly install something...just imagine how much it would cost to fix that motor if all your internals got fried<br> <br> 3) the amount of knowledge of the mbz engine is limited to only a few tuners who have control of this market and don't want to really let others play<br> <br> i guess that's wut i am assuming. <br> <br> call up Supreme Power Parts they might be able to help you with this...they would contract out the software part to GIAC
