Without revealing too much, I’m at the scanning stage with the theory stuff completed.... ish!!

Pics may or may not throw off potential copycats!! Don’t worry, I plan to manufacture enough manifolds for anyone interested!

I see room for lots of improvements despite their neat machining.... And at $28k I doubt they’ll sell many kits!

If you scroll down a bit you can see the custom M100 manifold...

That's going to run seriously hot with all those polished alloy components, the radiant surface areas would be about 20% of the factory finish.

That particular restoration shop seems to have a fetish for billet aluminum. At one point they were pushing billet gearbox cases for E-Types. Not really sure why as it would just make for a noisy gearbox. They seem to have quietly dropped that one though.

There is a 7.4 litre M100 in the works for a 300SEL 6.3 that I know of . The fact I may walk past these parts regularly is immaterial .

A case of aesthetics over metallurgy (see what I did there)

Looks very interesting & good to see someone trying something different! Is this in Australia??

Can someone please explain why a polished surface would increase the temperature? I thought Benz went for the alloy air cleaners to reduce heat soak (and weight)?? I would’ve thought a black finish would be hotter since it absorbs all light etc?

The company doing the work is called Classic Jaguar, based in Austin TX. While they are called Classic Jaguar, they do restoration for other marques as well. Their origins is doing E-Types. This is the first time I have seen them do a Mercedes though. (doesn't mean its the first time they have done one). Mostly the other stuff seems to be cars like Astons and old Ferraris etc.

Having an interest in old Jags, I look at their blog from time to time.

Polishing removes the hills and valleys of the original cast surface, reducing the surface area available for the transfer of heat from inside to out as the heat is generated inside the engine. The black surface absorbs heat from an ambient source.

Looks like it’d be ideal for forced induction & may also fit under the bonnet. They’ve done some great work on the engine, but I think there’s improvements that could be made elsewhere....

I used to have a Series 3 XJ12 when it was good it was very good. When it wasn't I wanted to burn it
