I'm newbie here.
I have both E500(124) and SL500(129); M119 engines.
I have few other cars I use as daily drive...
My question is regarding the SL, I have few issues with the injection, the MAF, and the ETA. As you all know: insulation/wiring, etc.
Now, one of my friends advised me to just sell the car and get rid of the headache of rebuilding everything, especially taht the interior too needs some attention..
But this car is so dear to me, I ca't just let it go...
It has a AMG body kit; AMG 17" 3 pc OZ rings, and even a pano roof I bought a while ago..!
My guess is is there a way to convert this M119 engine 5.0 to the M119 55 AMG? I mean can I swap the heads+ all what comes above it(intake/ETA/injectors/MAF, etc)??
Let me explain: I just bought a used M113 removed from a 2000 E55 AMG. It comes with full computers/wiring harnesses/injectors/MAF/ETA/tranny... I mean full!
It goes without saying that I wish I could just swap the whole engine+tranny; but I was told that the drive shaft and the differential wouldn't fit at all, because of the difference in dimensions.
Could you please guys give me any ideas or did some of you do similar job on their car before?
