I have I 82' 380 SEL and I was wondering what site is best to find parts for it,performance and looks. I'm already looking at myhotmercedes.com and carpartswholesale.com are there any better ones out there that you guys know about?
Whose Jonathan? And he can give me a 5L/5.6L/6L v8 for cheap? Cuz that would be sick lol how much would he want?.For MB Parts:
Jonathan - www dot blueridgemb dot com
Randy - www dot autopartsguru dot com
Rusty - mbz dot org
Salvage yards have a lot of parts if you want used.
"Performance parts" for a 380 is a contradiction in terms. Try www dot ls1tech dot com or Jonathan can help you swap that anemic 380 for a 5.0L (a direct swap) or 5.6L engine. He'd probably be able to put a 6.0L DOHC AMG motor in there if you want 350-400HP and I'm doing an LS6 swap into my 560SEC to get about 480HP.
Lol I just needa look around for cars that actually have the parts i need in them buy them from people that don't know anything for like a couple k and then swap the parts lol. Oh and how long would you give my engine with it's 170k miles. I mean everything pretty much needs to be replaces which is what i'm doing but yeah.stick with your euro 3.8 over a US 380 or 500 engine. only thing better is a euro 5 or 5.6
6.0 on a budget?
sorry, but you have better chances of winning the lottery. today. in all 50 states.
