ok, i think i get were your going with that...i'd like to stay stock mercedes, and then add some mods to boost performance, but i'm certainly open to other ideas. how much work would putting a chevy engine involve? does that mean i gotta convert the car over to gas? how much is all the parts gonna cost, engine/trannie, do i need a special shop to take it to? i know there are advantages to having a chevy engine (reliable, easy to find parts for)have you heard of other ppl doing this to their benz? basically what it comes down to is...there's no way i could do this on my own, so what is it going to mean i gotta do for someone else to do it?
