    Right, a reluctant but realistic sale, basically a conversion kit to create a W123 560 V8 for your W123. Thought I’d offer it to enthusiasts first before opening the floodgate on Ebay, and attracting nutters and dreamers etc As you can see from the pics, there are a lot of parts and the engine...

    W123 V8 560 6 speed manual anyone? Part 5 Final...

    Hello 249w123, welcome to the forum... M117 or OM606 super turbo is a choice dilemma indeed, both would give you a massive grin on your face when driven, both sound awesome when built well, but getting to that point would probably be cheaper, and more economical to run with the OM606 conversion...

    W124 estate engine swap/ conversions

    Most definitely cheaper to do it yourself, though it would be more challenging depending on technical ability and facilities. I have personally gone down this road, having amassed a lot of the parts, bespoke included, but the project being shelved due to various reasons. Its not an easy path, if...

    W123 V8 560 6 speed manual anyone? Part 5 Final...

    Part 5 It seemed like a great idea at the time, invest in a ‘cheap’ property on the coast with a relative who wanted an escape from hectic city life occasionally, and we would be able to have coastal breaks away and invest in a future pension that didn’t involve stock markets, time shares or...

    Evening all, Before I get into droning on about my ridiculous project I want to apologise to the administrator for posting my stuff in separate volumes as apposed to following it along the same thread? I'm not that sharp when it comes to knowing how to do this, so do I post a new thread or a...

    W123 V8 560 6 speed manual anyone? Part 2...

    I know the conversion expert I've been dealing with has fitted the 119 to the 123, though he did say because the heads are wider, it proves more challenging with exhaust pipe clearance. Saying that, last time I was at his workshop, he was converting a 123TE with a 113 engine, 6 speed and rack...

    W123 V8 560 6 speed manual anyone? Part 2...

    Sounds great, must be a much more satisfying drive. And given the current situation, I do now wish that I had stuck to the plan of the 560 auto, if only to have kept the project on track.

    W123 V8 560 6 speed manual anyone? Part 3...

    One of the things I had omitted to do when buying the engine and box, was to strip the donor car of the ignition box, wiring etc, the donor car had been sitting outside his workshop for months, I was already looking at other mods seeing as I had major car surgery coming up. We discussed many...

    W123 V8 560 6 speed manual anyone? Part 2...

    That's a good question! I have no idea which model the 6 speed would be from, I had a nice 5 speed that me and the expert agreed to swap with his 6 speed, but he said it would suit my application better. How does your 300se manual behave in comparison to the auto? Drivability and mpg etc?

    W123 V8 560 6 speed manual anyone? Part 2...

    I read a lot, watched some you tube, made some calls, then went to visit a certain ‘expert’ who had done the conversion a lot, and who people had recommended. I also read the magazine article on one this expert did for a chap in Ireland, and his car was the same colour as ours, I was sold on...
