I just spoke to my local MBZ parts guy. With discount, a long block 5.0 M119 (includes oil pan, heads & complete valvetrain, timing gear, the whole shebang except intake manifold & exhaust headers) can be had for $12,950. Also, the dealer called in to MBUSA and was told there are no 6.0 M119 motors for sale from the factory. Neil, do you know something they don't? Do you have a part number?
