    G63 2020 - access the dealer/service menu (on the MbUX)

    Hey people. Wonder if anyone can please help or offer some advice. I’ve just bought a 2020 G63. (And it was worth the 25 years I’ve been waiting to get one) But i can’t find anywhere on the interweb that shows how to access the dealer menu. I want to go in and turn off the fake sound that...

    Fitting a modern AMG v8 into a w126 SEC

    Hey All, I’m back with this crazy notion. So I’m planning on buying a c63 (>2010 ish) And fitting the engine, brakes and hopefully as much as possible to an SEC. As mentioned previously. It’s not the performance, I’d happily tune it down to 3/400, it’s: 1. The noise that I want. 2. The...

    Fitting a modern AMG v8 into a w126 SEC

    Cool. I was referring to the older ones. They were a bit louder and bassier than the modern ones which are probably more suppressed due to emission laws.

    Fitting a modern AMG v8 into a w126 SEC

    Is there anyone out there who could explain why the g wagon (much like the SL/E/ etc 55AMG engines) make such a unique and awesome sound? Like an automotive merlin spitfire engine.

    Fitting a modern AMG v8 into a w126 SEC

    That’s an interesting suggestion. I’m surprised a generic engine management controller would be able to be compatible enough to run an engine as sophisticated as a mega AMG V8. it’s maybe a bad sign that there seem to be so little cases of an engine like this being fitted to an old boy like...

    Fitting a modern AMG v8 into a w126 SEC

    May well be worth trying to find an exhaust wizard in case they can recreate it. Although I suspect it’s something to do with the engine set up. Rather than some clever pipework mastery...

    Fitting a modern AMG v8 into a w126 SEC

    I’ve built a completely stainless system from the downpipe back and while it sounds awesome and unique on the standard 560 engine it’s not the same sound and doesn’t sound as refined or bassey. no idea if I’m chasing an impossible dream. But the G Wagon sound (particularly the earlier ones) is...

    Fitting a modern AMG v8 into a w126 SEC

    It was the sound that I’m desperate for, not the performance. I just love the sound of the G Wagon. If I had a magic wand I’d try to recreate this.. Any ideas 😜

    Fitting a modern AMG v8 into a w126 SEC

    the M113K was the one I was thinking to be specific. 😯

    Fitting a modern AMG v8 into a w126 SEC

    Does one know which might be the least challenging modern AMG engine to fit into an SEC? I’ve read a few threads which suggests it’s been done, but they are all quite old and seem to go dead before claiming success. I was thinking the 55 Kompressor.. But it might be foolishly optimistic...
