Now, I want to change it up for bio-fuels. Reading about bio-fuels tells me that the diesel Mercedes Benz engines run *very well* on them.
So I'm wondering - could you take the engine from, say, a MB 280se sedan, and put it into the Metallicar? I know nothing about such things, and frankly, googling has gotten me nowhere.
I just don't know if the engine from the one would fit into the other's chassis.
Is it possible to convert the Metallicar's engine to run on bio-fuel? I guess that's the other question.
Any info would be awesome, even a link to a car-specific comm like this.
Basically googled 'will a Mercedes Benz engine fit into another car/a Chevrolet' and variations on that theme and have come up totally blank. Also 'retrofit a Chevrolet with a Mercedes Benz engine' and found out you could put a MB engine into a Jeep. But...that's pretty much it. Also 'will a 427 cid ls v8 engine run on biofuel' and variations - nothing at all.
