I'm surprised that your 111 has a 3.69 ratio. My 71 350SL 3.5 is 3.46 ratio as are all 108/109 3.5 V8s of that time...or that's what I thought. So maybe a 3.46 could be a nice minor change.

My 71 350SL with the same K4A040 shifts similar too. Actually, no matter what throttle position, it doesn't seem to alter change speeds much, unless I hit the kickdown switch.

Ha yep agree..my 71 350SL 3.5 has the singular 'outside mirror adjustable from inside' (per early 1971 brochure). As much as it is more hazardous not having the passenger side..it's quirky to see...

Hi Marcades, Nutzforbenz is spot on with the benefits of the TPS. And those 20 wipers acting as an 'electronic' accelerator pump add a fair bit of get up and go when you push the foot down. My 3.5...
