Which M117 to fit into W111 250SE
« on: October 08, 2022, 01:29:51 »
Hello all, Gael,
I read Gael’s 10 year old posts about the M117 5.0 V8 into his coupe.
I will have to install a V8 too, the L6 is really too slow.
There are many opinions about which M117, 4.5, 5.0, 5.6 D-jetronic, K-jetronic, anybody has any experience and advice? Stay away from the 3.5 M116?
Gael, if you are reading this, any reason why you replaced the original with megasquirt? This triggered change of the injectors and manifold?
My car has the original automatic transmission that I intend to keep, do I still have to enlarge the tunnel?
Thank you all,
