A Holley of any sort would be an improvement. My buddy Hans had to deal with them all the time in Germany, said they were horrible, even the factory tech couldn't get them right.

The M110 wasn't bad itself, other than being rather fuel hungry and terribly noisy due to solid lifters. More fiddly that the other single overhead cam Benz engines, but robust. Not a bad engine with fuel injection (either D-Jet or K-jet, depending on year).

Terrible mileage in all applications, though, mainly due to the really low rear ends (atypically 4.00:1 for gassers). The M110 spins silly fast, but gearing it for 6600 rpm at 125 mph results in horrible fuel consumption. Low teens is typical with the carb, mid teens with FI.
