    NEW Mercedes engines-need bit more info

    Well, if researched a little and i've found that in substitution of the 240 line, a 2.6 liter V6, will be changed to a 280 line with about 231 hp. The 230 line a supercharge inline 4 with 189 hp will be raised to 204 hp. The 430 line will be changed to 460, a 4.6 liter V8 with about 306 instead of a 4.3 liter V8 with 280 something hp. One of the most popular engines, the 500 line will be changed to a 5.5 liter V8 with about 388 hp, replacing the 5.0 liter V8 with 306 hp. For the AMG's, the 55 line will be changed to a 63, 6.3 liter natural V8 with about 520 hp. For the small units(c,clk,slk), they will get a 6.0 liter natural V8 with about 420 hp called the 60 line.

    Can someone please help me with the V12's and will they change the 65's?

    i would think it would either stay or go to a 700 i think

    On the shore lay Montezuma
    With his cocoa leaves and pearls

    any changes to the '12s will be dependant on the numbers the 7GTRONIC box can take, but it's 'sposed to be more than the SpeedShift 5sp, so Merc will probably just tune the '12s up a bit as they are detuned at the moment to save the gearbox
