    The M156 really needs to be modded. The M113 really outputs with only a tune and new pulley.

    I'd go with FI over NA.

    6.2 you dont get as much power but the sounds is amazing. The backfire and crackle noise from the 6.2 is orgasmic.
    AGREED, the 6.2l sounds awesome!

    Supercharger for the M156? I wouldn't go anywhere near that....at least not if you realize you need a torque converter and transmission to drive the car.

    I'd choose the 63 any day.

    Best MB engines ever made: 5.5 Kompressor and V12 TT coupled with the 5 speed auto.

    The 6.3 sounds like a farm tractor.

    How dare you. The 6.2L's exhaust note is one of the most orgasmic things in the auto world! Take that back right now.

    ^^i agree

    you can also get the m273 which is the NA 5.5L V8 but modding is relatively difficult since it has only been around since 07 and there aren't too many parts available as of yet

    Thanks for the input guys!

    I have drove both numerous times, and love both equally. The 6.3s do sound great, but I think I'll probably go the 55K route. I'm a power and speed whore always pushing for more.

    Only way I'll opt for the 63 is if I bit the bullet on a C63. Oooh do I love that thing!
