    this is my diy attempt at a M275 engine table - same as in my R230 SL600, it actually came out of an SL600 too!
    What you think?

    I'm not a fan of pistons holding the glass. They just look a bit, well wrong.

    Here's my Rover V8 based one.

    Well ok to disagree, I like them especially as they are the original pistons with the MB logo on them!
    I bought this as a part finished item with the original head bolts welded to the con rods!
    looked rubbish, I admit it could look better than it does now but not too bad! and will not get rid of it unlesss it goes with my SL600 if I ever sell it!

    If you like them then that's great. I just think they make it look top heavy.
    The welded bolts did look terrible.

    I did mine from scratch using an old V8 in the shed. Surprisingly easy to do. A V12 is even easier due to the 60 degree V as opposed to the 90 degree V of a V8.

    also, imo (based admittedly!) M275 is a WAY better looking block! sorry and awaiting abuse!
