That's pretty cool that you were able to do all that work yourself. It's pretty obvious that most people on this list don't like the idea of using non-mercedes engines in MB cars, but who am I to tell anybody what to do with their car. I think somebody else asked, but do you have pitures of the work you did? I think it would be really educational it you could post them for everyone to see. I wish I were as knowledgeable, and skilled working under the hood as you are to do that kind of work. Congratulations, and I am glad you like it, like you said it would have been horrible to have to part out a great car like that.
