I want! I want! I want!! Is it a real MB engine? That would be really something. I wonder what it runs in the 1/4? Do you think my neighbors would mind me cranking it up to go fishing at 4am on a Sat morning?

not one of a kind or at least the idea is not. I've seen a few SEC's that have had the same stuff done online.
Is that a shoot on the back?
Another thing I would want to know is was the frame strenghened!
But I must say it's neat

I would have agreed, except for the valve covers...looks like the timing gear cover that would be expected on an M-B engine.

I do agree on not liking it, though...although it is certainly unique; you don't see too many M-B's floating around with 6-71 blowers sitting on the hood
