I got some more pictures of my w126/AMG picture collection to share...

Here's a 1991 (2nd generation) 560, formerly with an AMG engine, that had a neat engine modification performed on it. Cyberdrakon and I talked about this type of engine modification and came to the conclusion it would have been easier to drop in an M119 in.

Anyways, the car now has a DOHC 6.0L M117/9 engine.. still giving off large HP/torque #'s, unfortunately I don't have the exact figures.


BTW.. I am looking for the 3-piece AMG wheels like shown in the pictures. I can probably be able to pick a set up in Germany, but I don't like the hassle of having 4 wheels boxed and pay VAT ontop of that. So if anyone has any leads to a set of nicely priced wheels, I would appreciate it.

why does ur engines sides look different.. IE: they r not black androunded

btw..neat car.
I wrote about it at the top... Its a M117/9 engine. The head is off of a M119 engine thats found in 500SL and 500E/E500's. However this head is extra-special because its off of a 6.0 AMG M119 motor.

Very nice, indeed!

I certainly love those rims. I'd love a set on my SEC.

very nice man..! Any issues w/ warping? I have heard that these heads can be prone to it at times.

I'm waiting on some AMG literature so I'll see what info it has reagarding your engine.

Check this link too... This issue was discussed on another board and we came to the conclusion that it could be done but it was very unlikey as the head bolts/studs do not line up and something VERY custom would've had to been done. I thought the power steering pump wouldn't even fit there if they were M119 heads but I guess anything could be rigged up with enough money/knowhow. By the way, the 6.0 AMG M119 puts out 381hp and 420lb/ft. Not far from the M117's 375hp (385 depending on what you read) and 407lb/ft. (This car is also in Japan so maybe they know something we don't!)

I'm partial to simple green and a power washer...Stay away from the EZL and cover the intake (I use a plastic bag w/ a rubber band).

No, they’re not stock seats. The seats you see in the picture were from AMG.
