I am more of a "Ford in a Ford", "Merc in a Merc" kind of guy, but for bang-for-buck its hard to beat the US drivetrains. The main trouble with the domestic powertrains is that they typically don't suit the MB rear end ratio's, so you end up with a drag car.
I am once again going the "merc in a Merc" route, as my new acquisition arrived yesterday - a 2000 E55 AMG engine and trans, destined for my 1967 W111 250SE coupe... Once I learn about computers...
