Complexity is the enemy of reliability.
I would go for a naturally aspirated M113 engine.

|Danson||Agree with you, C32amg was one fabulous car i mean the first V6 from Merc that could run with Porsche 911 can still challenge many cars to date, compared to E46 M3 and Audi S4 its still cheaper to own|

|Adullessence||I think we should start a posts on the good things about the c32. I've had minor problems with mine, but as stated before I stay on top the the servicing and it's been fine. i don't wanna jinx myself and i'm not speaking on how anyone else takes care of their car. Just saying that it would be nice to have a post NOT so much about scaring people away from these cool cars. Because there are those of them out there that hold up to whats expected of them. Is Anyone with me on this?|

|thewraith||this is my second c32 and i've had a ton of other mercedes. i have never had any problems with any of the cars. i did do preventative maintenance like changing out the valeo radiator and replacing the intercooler pump and front bushings. but i have had NO problems with my c32- it will still eat a stock e92 335i and do it w/a better interior|

I must say that the build quality is nowhere near as my old C43, but I share the same view as Essex Boy. My C32 2002 Has been pretty reliable so far, just minor problems which were covered under warranty.
Maybe our C32 AMG's in Europe are better built than those in the states - Just kidding.

after you purchase and receive the bearing you can actually just go to TWS (thewheelsupply.com) they're far closer than Ontario/Rancho Cucamonga where my dad's friend's shop is at.
pretty much all the mech shop will be able to replace the bearing in the charger clutch for you. it's just one bolt. just follow the direction codessmith gave in the mbworld link. you'll have to losen few fittings to allow space to slide the clutch bearing out.
