For Dan: M278 question

Dan
This isn't a question directly related to SLKs, but you're the first person I thought about having tons of MBZ tech data.

What are the differences in the M278 TT engine as used in the CL (429 hp us), SL (429) or '12 E 550 (402)? Are there mechanical differences and/or "tuning" only.

Thanks!
John

John,

We have heard that Dan is ill and has not made an appearance here in almost a year I believe.

Hey Due - not Dan, but from what I've read, the biggest difference is the exhaust - which I suppose makes sense, given the fractional differences.

Brabus supposedly has a M278TT at over 600hp - that would really be something to see! ;-)
