Well, the first thing that comes to mind is that with some better wine and/or beer, you might find a more suitable car or much worse engine for your project.
Putting an MB engine in a car that has about the same value as the engine's intake manifold doesn't make much sense, but that just my take on it. :-)
US '87 560SEC with Euro headlights, clear markers, H&Rs, 18x8.5, ATE slotted rotors with semi-metallics, BergWerks FGS, 3.07 Limited Slip.
In progress - FrankenBenz SEC: GM LS6 5.7L engine with custom 4L60E 4-spd overdrive transmission, GM rack and pinion.
One of my goals with the FrankenBenz is to scare women and children, and to have Lexus drivers spill their latte.
