AMG 6.2L motor swap into my Manual Trans SLK?
Before any of you critics get to talking down upon me and say "Ohhhhh brother you don't know what you're talking about doing you'll need to stiffen the chassis to handle the power as well as upgrade brakes, driveline, differential, the trans itself along with clutch components and a custom bell housing- not to mention the likely silly amount of ECU work that presents itself blah blah blah." Please only respond if you can help me, as well as the forum move forward on the basis of Later Model (2005+) Mercedes-Benz ECU and Trans correspondence as well as anyone who knows anyone with expertise regarding custom Transmission work.
I drive a Launch Edition 2005 SLK 350 (R171) with a Manual Transmission.
The car is complete and running.
I'm fortunate enough to be in a position where I have full complete ignition setups for all sorts of vehicles in my surround, and if it really is possible to do a crazy cool engine swap such as the one in the link it would be financially feasible for someone in my field.
The 6.2L Motor used in 08-14 C63 and other "63" cars was just appealing to me because it's a very stout motor that can also rev freely and breathe flexibly. In addition to this, I currently have access to a 2007 E63 AMG Full ignition setup. This includes the Engine brain, Ignition, Key, Immobilizer, Gauge Cluster, Shifter, as well as Engine, Trans, and Transmission Valve Body for an incredibly reasonable price in comparison to what people would normally pay for these items.
If you think you could provide any further information about this topic, or think you know of anyone who may be able to shed some light, please let me know- as I would really like to create something special.
