With that kind of power they guys took time to upgrade the suspension and braking power with AMG eight-piston brakes. They also made the appearance match the performance with a E63 AMG bumper conversion and 19×10 Rotiform aluminum wheels.

    The om606 is a phenomenal engine and well up to the task. Unfortunately, I can’t see doing this in the United States. I would not like to have an engine in my car that requires parts and service from outside of the country. Plus,the police would be on your ass if your vehicle was smoking like the DPUK cars do. Much better to swap a Toyota 2JZ. As much as 500 hp for a modest amount of money.
