    It looks so good save the cheese grater wheels. You could eat your dinner off the engine bay.

    This is not there but to acquire an option for sale:

    The car is not part of the auction!
    m104 3.6 engine 0 km for even more power!
    AMG 8 piston brake system,
    AGA 2x70mm with metal catalysts,
    Conversion Kit on manual or automatic transmission is available and not rocket science!

    It has been for sale for a little while now.

    I thought it might be a great buy, but I would want to now the ins and outs of who built, how they built it, every specialised part and the builder's track record before I spent a large sum on this kind of custom engine.
    I suppose it's a trade off - have it done yourself and know all the above, or trust that someone has done it thoughtfully, skillfully and carefully.

    Also, would that kind of power would required gearbox, diff, driv eshaft and prop shaft strengthening of some kind?

    Could prove insane once installed in any 124 or just imagine it in a 190E!

    I imagine one would need a tender with replacement head gaskets in constant attendance.

    The levels of torque and power being generated would, I suspect, make this entirely unpleasant to drive.
