just for thought 6.9 swapped into a w126?

Could it happen? would it be worth the effort? what other powerplants would swap in (ie. modern and efficient). I want power (some day when I have time and money

A 450SEL 6.9 is not going to blow the doors off a 560SEL. Despite the displacment and torque advantage of the 6.9, the 560 is quicker to 60mph and will probably do better than the 6.9's 140mph top speed. According to Nitske, anyway.

Search the archives or the internet for information on the guy who put an M119 in his SEC.
