    C124 V8 conversion

    Thanks for that, this is the info I'm looking for. I know it can be done but it's been done so many different ways that the info isn't really out there, I'm willing to document parts needed & cost involved so that if anybody wants to do it in the future then the info will be to hand.

    C124 V8 conversion

    Thanks Jaymanek. That's the thing, finding a complete donor car for sensible money. I'm hoping Mr Carat 3.6 will be able to do the swap as I don't really have the time or the space (wiring is the devils work too :crazy:) I've got a time scale of 2 years as baby number 2 arrives in April...

    C124 V8 conversion

    Ideally I want to stick with the M117 for simplicity & I like the way it looks in the engine bay, it's of the time the W124 was produced. I know they did the 500E but I'm wanting pre facelift so M117 for me (If I can find one)

    C124 V8 conversion

    Cheers mate but it isn't in my inbox :( Do I have to have a certain amount of posts before I can receive them? Did you get the one I sent you?

    C124 V8 conversion

    I've tried sending him a pm but for some reason it's saying it's sent but it's not in my sent box. I've read his replies to other V8 swap threads & he's very positive about it being straightforward & doable.

    C124 V8 conversion

    I've heard different things from different forums but it's been done in the past. I just want to speak to someone who's done it so I know what to expect.

    C124 V8 conversion

    I've been looking on & off for the last couple of years but have only found a couple but no one in the UK (there's probably loads but they haven't published anything on the web) I'm still deciding on wether to go C124 or C126 but thought I'd post on here as there's lots of knowledgeable people...

    C124 V8 conversion

    I can't ever recall seeing a 400E in the UK.... Would be fun to get one of them too.

    C124 V8 conversion

    Yeah but it doesn't have the sound or the fact of knowing there's 5+ litres up front.... I think the M119 would be better but the M117 is simpler to install from what I've been able to research (and that's not much) with the new FrankenCIS brought out recently tuning the M117 has never been...

    C124 V8 conversion

    Hi. Has anybody on here put a M117 into a C124? Just wondering if there's anyone who could carry this out & what the costs would be. Trying to decide on my next car C126 or C124 V8 swap. Cheers Jamie

    C126 500/560sec

    Thanks for the info, I'll read through your thread when I have a spare hour or so. My thinking is the same as yours, get one that needs a bit of love & have spare cash in the pot to do the repairs. As I could buy one for £8k & still find it needs the same repairs but with no spare cash to do...

    C126 500/560sec

    Evening all. I'm hoping to get into a 500 or 560sec over the next 12-18months (couple of cars to strip/sell 1st) and was wondering if someone could give me a realistic budget to have before I even start looking. I wouldn't be looking for concourse but would like a nice example to use on the...

    Awesome! Glad it wasn't a wasted journey. Enjoy it & I'm looking forward to how you get on with it :)

    Does anyone know this E55

    Yeah, they have all changed. I found it amusing when the spec listed 8.8mpg average lol

    Does anyone know this E55

    I hear what your saying about the close ups but if I'm passing where the car is over the next couple of weeks then I'll pop in & have a look at it.
