    I have been wondering if it would be possible to put the bigger 500 engine into my clk 320. Any help on this would be great

    Anything is possible.

    The more pertinent question is, is it viable?

    The answer to that is almost always no when the manufacturer produced the very model you're looking to create.

    Buy a CLK 500, it will be cheaper, built correctly and unmodified.

    Now, if the question was can I fit a 500 engine in a 190E? That's different, you're building a bespoke vehicle which was never manufactured.
