my brother and a couple friends of ours took my mom 1970 280SE convertible out to lunch for a spin on a beautiful day in Pasadena,CA using a GoPro camera. Mercedes Benz Rollin GoPro - YouTube
Great video! But if you were my son, you'd learn to STOP at stop signs! I'd hate to see this rare expensive car T boned by an Aztec.

Is it possible to fit an e55 supercharger on a m117 engine? And is it possible to get it to work properly?

Ok little about the car Car is an w126 500se 85mod pre facelift (euro car) and has a Vems efi system fitted.

I have the opportunity to buy one e55amg charger of a friend but i have a few conserns.
What can i do to the eletric clutch on the charger?
and thinking this charger is made for an 550 engine is it even possible to get it to work fo real on a 500engine?

I have free access to cnc machineso im ot worried about adapter plates,brackets, and bigger o smaller pulleys

I posted this a while back but has anybody finished a custom intake manifold for the M117 engine?

I am looking to build one and do an EFI setup with a Vems or AEM ecu

Yep. Carobu Engineering built one for me. I have a 1986 560 SL - M117 - so its the 2 valve version. It's now at 380+ bhp.

Hi Pearson, 380+ bhp is quite impressive. Would you mind telling us more about your set-up?

I just wanted to quickly mention that DKUBUS is currently doing performance mods to a customers 560SEC.

He added 276 cams and FrakenCIS to put out 355HP (stock intake manifold).

Compared to the 385HP that Carobu managed to put down, DKUBUS' route seems far more affordable for anyone itching for more performance.
