    MKB swaps a M275 twin turbo V12 into a Mercedes GL for $294,000

    We like seeing Mercedes M275 V12 swaps and we especially like seeing them swapped into the Mercedes SUV's as they were never produced with the M275 V12's. So MKB puts the motor into the GL and tweaks it to 658 horsepower which is very respectable. What is the problem with this swap? MKB takes 6 months and wants $294,000 for the swap not including the price of the car. Uh, not exactly cost effective. If one is serious, this can be done for far less money. Certainly less than over a 1/4 million dollars.

    the middle east countries that want stupid fast SUV's just transplant the 2jz with a large single. this imo this is a waste of money, unless you/they want the merc luxury. there are dozens of videos of 2jz toyota land cruisers raping good competition lol.

    Those fast land cruisers have 1FZ. iron block straight 6 with 4500 CC displacement, boost them and they will hit 1000hp easily.

    This pricing is offensive.
