    Hi guys!
    Help needed from more knowledgeable guys here on the forum.
    Last year I bought a w208 clk320 with original rear bumper skirt,back box,door sills,sill covers,wing badge,gear knob and steering wheel.
    Was going to break but someone suggested that it might have the brabus original cams if it's got the cams don't really want to break it, but I don't know how and where shall I look for the info.
    Can someone help me with that please?
    Thanks in advance

    Rocker cover(s) off to look at cams?

    Last time I looked for after-market cams in an engine, they weren't there. You might have better luck?

    I suspect they may be mistaken/misinformed, I would only expect to see cams as part of their 3.8 engine conversion. Chances are it's just the cosmetics.

    I would have thought they would be different, but have no idea how you'd tell... unless they stamp their logo in them.
