mercedes 500 sec w126
I now have my Mercedes sec 500 on the road!, loving every minute!.. I going to santa pod raceway in a few weeks is there any performance mods for the m117 engine?? I can't find any exhaust Headers or any high energy cams? I already have 8.5mm ht leads, iridium plugs, k&n filter and a twin full basically straight though exhaust system with quad exit with the exception of 2x glass pack cherry bombs fitted in the middle.. this maybe a silly question but can you remap these? is it worth it? any other engine mods available on the internet?

Thanks for your time.

There doesn't seem to be much about for them really. Maybe check out Benz world in the US, there's a couple people on there who have had cams reproduced.

You may want to double check your plugs are ok, they need to be the non resistor type I believe.
