    A 3.0l m103 is a better and cheaper option I would have thought

    I really like that car also.

    Not only is it an outstanding piece of engineering, but it looks absolutely spot on too in every detail.

    Cosworth kits were never available as a factory option on non 16v cars.

    M103 3 litre is the lump for that thing.

    How difficult would it be to drop a c43 engine and box into it? Ive already got a gearbox and im sure olly was selling a 43 amg engine not so long ago.

    The electronics would be the difficult bit as all the different ECUs and the wiring loom would be a major pain. Dropping a 5.0L lump from a W140 S class or SL would be a simpler (I use that term loosely) job.
