Hi, all.<br> I'd like to find out what varieties of M110 (double-cam "280") exist, <br>both USA and, more important, "Euro" (or gray market) engines, especially <br>fuel-injected varieties around 1980-85 as well as their horsepower ratings. <br>An example would be M110.994, which I know is for a GWagen, with a mere 150 <br>hp. I have heard there are also M110.996, .987, and .990. What are their <br>horsepowers, and what other varieties exist?<p> Although I've got info from some books on some models that were officially sold here in the USA, but I can't seem to find enough on Euro/gray-market versions of these engines, which is what I need. On these Euros, I've received some intriguing bits of info -- but I need more<br> I'm particularly interested in the:<br>M110.987 (is this in a '80-85 280SEL/Euro ?) -- horsepower?<br>M110.990 (possibly in a '77-85 280SL/Euro ?) -- horsepower?<p>for those also interested, let me share that I've been told:<br>M110.921 165 hp<br>M110.984 186 hp and 177 hp (two different opinions)<br>M110.988 185 hp (also, that the USA version had 142 hp)<p>Also, I've got figures from that the W126's 280S had 156 hp, while the 280SE/SEL had 185 hp -- but there's no mention of whether these are USA or Euro versions, AND no identification of which versions of M110s these are.<p>Thanks again everyone.<br>Ken C.<br>
