Looking for M117 6.0 DOHC AMG engine

Hi, I am totally rebuilding my 560 SEL from 1987 and I want to upgrade the engine as well. I'll try to find it here, I am ready to buy it anywere from the whole wide world
It should be at least working condition...
If anybody even now from where to search, please let me know...
So far no luck from Geramny, ebay etc....


BTW - I can offer two complete euro 5,6 M117 (without catalyst, 220kw/300 HP) engines in perfect condition and I am ready to ship these to anywhere if anybody would be really intrested in them...

A lot of intrest for those engines, it's easier to write some information of them here to send private messages.

I have two engines, both of them 300HP/220 KW engines without catalysts...

So, here's the picture of that first engine, first I wanted to install it to my W126, but now I am looking for 6,0 M117 AmG engine and I have considered even to intall 55 AMG engine with compressor...but the electronics would be the main problem...That engine I am ready to sell riht now.
I bought it from Germany some months ago, I have a friend there. He says that it has run aprox. 170 000 km and I think it's true, he's the one who took it from 560 SEL and it run perfectly(totally quite). I have screwed off the cylinder head covers, it was very OK from there, the camshafts were really nice, only a few very small crathches...But the shape of it is in excellent condition.... Before installing I suggest to change the gaskets ( no need to change the cylinder heads gaskets), it's easier to do it when the engine is off the viehcle..
It will come asi you see it from the picture - A/C compressor and oil cooling radiator as well. I will not unscrew anything from there. And plase look the exhaust manifolds, there are 4 outlets as the 220kw engine have....
Then the transport - I have to check for it but I think it will not be a problem beacause there are a lot of seaconteiners going back empty to US.
What it would cost I'll have to find out but I guess a couple of hundreds $...

And I have one engine more, that I bought some years ago and I wanted to restore it totally.
The cylinder heads are restored - ALL of the changeble parts are changed, I have used only the original parts of Daimler.
The cylnder heads themselves are planished as well. ALL the gaskets of the engine have been changed, it has a new oil pan, new chain with all the levelers and the tensioner.
The main block was in excellent conditon, I didn't restore it. The bulbs, crancshaft etc. were in excellent condition...
It has new A/C pump, new cylinder head covers etc and the exhaust manifolds are crohmed.
Only the parts themselves has costs so far ~4000 EUR. And that engine I will sell only if I'll find the AMG 6,0 engine or I will install some newer AMG engine to my car.
