Default 300sel 7.1

This is from Galloway engine's Facebook page and car is at my former work . A Mercedes project recently completed, M100 OHC 6.3 V8. This project included a longer stroke crankshaft we manufactured to take the capacity to 7.1 litres, custom forged pistons to suit with thin modern rings, valve pockets for larger camshafts and smaller piston pins, with a H beam rod we managed to shave a massive 1kg from each rod piston combo!!
We completed mild cylinder porting to improve street performance, setup of custom ground camshaft and all machining work.
Custom adjustable camshaft gears were made in house to allow exact positioning on cams when assembled on the engine. Will make a great street engine in a German classic.
