Swap a 2.6L engine in 4 cyl 190E?
Has anyone done a 2.6L conversion on a 4cyl Mercedes? These engines seem to be plentiful. The 4 cyl is pretty good for me but where I live the car is too old to get emissions so i can basically put whatever I want under the hood. Its a 5 spd. How difficult would it be? I assume no fabrication? are we looking at removing the front end to slide the engine in? I guess it would be best to get a wrecked car? Shortened driveshaft? same 5spd trans will bolt up? according to the EPA, its only a 1 MPG hit.
I thought it might be a good winter project
