You would think for that much money it would at least have the COMAND installation mod from Brabus. Hardly seems exotic enough going on the engine alone.Fly Navy - 4/26/2005 4:00 PM
For sale in Hong Kong. I hope the link works...
Well, our cars were made the four cylinder...and that is how long the v-8 is...four cylinders in length. And as to width, the v6 and v8 are pretty much the same. So from a design standpoint, there should be no problem with putting in the v8. As to weight, if you put the battery in the trunk, you have effectively moved the engine weight back about 10 % of the wheel base....and therefore they should not be so front heavy. If they used light weight stuff in making the v8 - aluminum heads and block plus stainless steel headers, then it can actually weigh pretty much the same as a v6. Ya know, years back (think 1969- 75) chevy made all those big block aluminuim v8's for a purpose. The all aluminum big block chevy v8 weighed the same as the cast steel and iron small block v8. So, where there is a will, there is a way.....now let's see- where is my slide rule and the jet engine I plan to put on my skate board[)]pterion - 4/25/2005 2:05 PM
I don't get it... its a standard (pre 2005) SLK body, but with a 6.5 liter V8?
None of that makes sense. How do you get a 6.5L V8 into an engine bay made for a 3.2L v6
