Nice Gustav, very nice!! Your engine mount setup is very similar to mine. I didnt have to make the same tunnel modifications as you as I am using a turbo 350 gearbox. I have a W109 6.3 diff that should be about perfect for the twin turbo 350. Instead of mounting the gearbox oil coolers up front, mine are underneath, with their own thermos running at 100% duty and up front, where your gearbox coolers are I have an intercooler.
Mercmad you make me laugh, Im not pissed off at anyone, Im not shitty either. As gustav has exemplified, the conversion will work and as Ive told you, if I had the money, I wouldnt even bother doing a project, Id just import a 6.3, but I dont so I do. Still no word on a so called mate that was helping me out with hubs, Ive still got the stock merc fronts on there, which are NO WHERE near good enough, and things have slowed on the merc, with university taking the front seat until June.
I am changing the merc stuff to holden stuff due to COST and AVAILABILITY. I dont have the cash to purchase remakes of 40 odd year old car parts from Germany. Its a hell of a lot cheaper to go holden (read chev) and if I break a part, I know I can drive 10 minutes down the road and get a replacement, AT A QUARTER OF THE PRICE of merc gear, which, even they even make it anymore, will take weeks to get in from overseas.
Mercmad, you need to get off your Mercedes high horse. If we had the money, as you do, then sure, we could afford the original, but for some of us, who still LOVE the shape and the beauty of the old mercs, it just aint possible.
