is right it was just a bit of craic, a photo spoof ......................
I would have saved the pictures for April 1st, but the 5.0 V8 Engine will be in the R170 SLK long before then, see the whole thread on here
After my accident yesterday it doesn't quite seem so funny now
I had both Cars stood bonnet (hood) to bonnet, pulled the Airboxes off to have a good look see, that's when I came up with the idea of a photo joke
It looks like it will be really easy, don't forget this Car is already fitted with an M112 V6, so the S Class M113 is absolutely identical except for 2 extra cylinders, it will be a lot easier than some I've done
There is 2 or three choices with OE Mercedes cooling fans, I'll be hunting fleabay and come up with the best one for the job, because obviously the stock SLK one has to go, everything else fits really easy using the right combination of S500 V8 and SLK 320 V6 parts.
The Engine ECU Immobilizer issue that others have had is now sussed and sorted here in house.
There is very little fabrication as you will all see when the V8 gets dropped in there in the coming winter, between now and then I have a few more parts left to source and then all parts will be in da building
I reckon it will take me longer to fabricate a custom centre to rear half exhaust than actually fit the Engine
Chow for now,
