Building a Mercedes C 230 with a Turbo VR6

Mercedes C 230 with a Turbo VR6

A team of enthusiasts in Central Florida are working on installing a VW VR6 into a 2000 Mercedes C 230 Kompressor. The project started when the factory 2.3 M111 inline-four overheated and damaged the cylinder head. So far the owner has converted the oil pan to a rear sump and made a prototype adapter plate out of wood to connect the VR6 to the factory Mercedes 716.668 six-speed manual transmission. Follow the project’s progress in the build thread.

    There was a limited C32 coupe, so the AMG 3.2L fits. The only question is about the manual working right with the AMG computer. This was something RennSport was exploring.
