That's just it, the Crossfire driveshaft would put the V8 in the correct location because Mercedes redid a couple of things after 2001 to accommodate the V6. my SLK is a pre-2001 and the V8 was a couple of inches farther back because of how the 4 cylinder was positioned.

I just need to make sure that the Crossfire driveshaft is indeed 2" longer than my SLK230 shaft.
