The Chev engine is VERY reliable, MUCH better than a Mercedes; ...as the Mercedes cruise is fraught with design problems and fails early, whilst the GM works forever; The T700R4 transmission is smooth as silk, and doesn't have any strange problems like the mercedes transmissions do.
Geez Richard. You gush over GM and knock MB so much, it makes me wonder why you went through all the trouble of making the conversion when you could have just gone out and bought a Chevy!
