Thanks -- who else
Thanks for the reference and advise on the $$. I have a 96 G320 with 170,000 miles. I have enough custom modes on it that I do not want to trade it on a V8 and not sure I want that engine and the other electronics with the newer chassie anyway. I also intent to drive it for another 100K or so and would like both more power and reliability of a newer engine. It goes to some places that are very far from MB mechanics.
All this seems to add up to a 3.6 (certianly not a 2.6) conversion. Brabus sold this version for very high dollars, but they are very hard to find.
Anyone have any other suggestion for an engine upgrade or who else would do the job for less money.
