Mine has bent valve on #5 and exhaust cam on Bank 1 is NOT centered within inspection hole. I'd rather find one which is timed properly, though i know the SLKs engine is probably in the affected range based on year of manufacture.

I asked seller for photos to demonstrate the basic cam position is correct, and it appears to be from photos. $1125 shipped. I intend to upgrade the intake flaw with upgraded parts. That seems to be what may have failed on my 280 causing the bent valve.
