anything is possible as long as there is $$$$($) to put into it. just buy the V8 bi-turbo engine they use in the 63 cars and then plop it in.

why not the 65 amg black? :p i've stated why i dont want to transplant before. there comes a point where money wouldnt make anything more possible hp wise for my m119. i think 1200hp is a good starting point

the 65 AMG black would be amazing. i have a plan for my R129. and that is the SLS engine and transmission dropped into it. with the matching suspension that adapts with the transmission. and that engine has no turbo or superchargers on it. and it is beast.

ahh yes I see what you mean. that makes perfect sense. your 1200HP would probably beat mine though. but I just quite like that 6.3L engine with no turbo or super. something about it being all raw power that makes it all so cool.

yeah im going to do the forced induction after i convert it to direct injection and stroke it to 6.3. that way since i feel the same about forced induction.. i can see where i stand. if i hit 1200hp before... however unlikely then i dont have to. :)

oh wow. that is a lot of things. very nice list though. one of the things on the top of my list is the projector headlights. but i have a few other things as well.

very nice list though. and why do you want the car one colour? it wont be as original if you make it one tone instead of two toned.

because my bumper was cracked by the previous owner and bondoed back together. i want to replace the bumper. and there are nicks here and there from whatever from the previous owner dirt or rocks while driving. so i want to repaint it to be flawless. it doesnt really need it except for the bumper thing. so i figured if i repaint it i would go the new mercedes white. idk what its called my dad has it on his e350 2012. but i think it looks better...
