US V8s In Mercedes

US V8s In Mercedes

Thinking of a nice, cheap American V8 to replace that annoying original motor in your Mercedes?

This is a daunting project. Little issues like "how to I get the heat to work with a Chevy powerplant". Or: "Cruise control?". Let's not forget: "Now, how do I get the speedo to work?". "I wonder if anyone will notice that the tach is non-functional". "Temperature guage? Who REALLY needs to have a temperature guage?" "Oil pressure guage? Who really needs an oil pressure guage?"

Best of luck.
