Hello my name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required.

you can do any custom modification like that , all you need is time and money, not a lot of people are putting those into Mercedes so some fab work is going to need to be done, as well as some wicked wiring skills

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
Well it is 01 e 320 it seems to have the room for the engine and transmission. Not sure how the wireing would match up.
Expert:  TECHPRO49 replied 2 months ago.

it wouldnt, you would have to mate the engine controls to the mercedes unless you planed on doing a full gauge or dash swap.

Expert:  TECHPRO49 replied 2 months ago.

then you are still left with the BCM and interior controls which will need to be configured to the system as well. lots of fun hotrodding!

Expert:  TECHPRO49 replied 2 months ago.

The engine will fit but the wiring would be an issue*

Expert:  TECHPRO49 replied 2 months ago.

do you have any other questions?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
Dont think a entire gauge swap would be fesable. Would like to keep it a sleeper
Customer: replied 2 months ago.
Any recriminations on wireing
Expert:  TECHPRO49 replied 2 months ago.

painless wiring harnesses could help you solve a lot of that, I would give them a call and see if the can provide some plug and play solutions .
