  Spotted in Seattle, Washington is an AMG 3.6L Motor for $2,100 USD.  The seller states this is a very rare and hard to find motor.  It is capable of 280hp and came from Japan with 77k miles on it.   This motor would be a good candidate for a w1246 E320 Coupe swap.   It comes with a very rare 3.6 intake tube  and for W124 with HFM EFI (93-95), comes with an already-chipped ECU for non-ASR cars by Speedtuning to take advantage of the higher HP 3.6L.
