Ben,

I bought the 300hp version of the 6.5. It fits just like the stock motor. It uses a 2005 AMG block, but with 18:1 pistons and a custom turbo. No wastegate on this model. No real need for it anyway. It builds 15 psi of boost in no time.

I will keep the board apprised of my brake upgrade, if I pull the trigger. I will probably wait for warmer weather, as I do most of my work outside. I can't quite get the garage door closed with the Burb inside.

How much difference did the 1 ton MC make. Did you need less pedal pressure? I have heard of some guys that have disconnected the ABS and report absolutely great braking performance. Speaking of which, the TSM kit says you might need the proportioning valve if you don't have ABS. Well, I think that I will probably need it anyway. I don't want to have the ABS cycling on the back brakes, when the front aren't fully loaded. It's easy to adjust, once you plumb it in. Set it and forget it. It just takes a little practice to dial it in.

Jake
