Are any of you interested in a M113K swap and willing to shell out 10K for it? In case you don't know, the M113K is the supercharged V8 that resides in the CL55, SL55, E55, etc. Stock it produces 469HP and 516TQ stock, so a simple pulley swap and tune will net another 100HP.
I've been looking into the swap for my SLK55, and I ran into a shop that has performed a few of these swaps recently. The shop will supply the motor, tranny, misc parts, labor, and tuning for a full OEM looking swap for around 10K, maybe less. As with a few others, the downside is non working ESP or cruise control.
Anyone willing to shell out that kind of money for a swap?
Sorry, but I don't want to mention the specific shop just yet, as this is just a feeler.
This isn't just for the SLK55 crowd, this is for all SLK's.
