Jeep / Mercedes Hybrid

So my 2007 CLK 550 it totalled! The damage to value ratio is too high. Even though no mechanicals are damaged, the frame is severly tweaked. The body panes are all PERFECT except the hood, front bumper & passenger front fender.

But I'm thinking, this 5.5 litre engine is totally awesome! It has more bhp than a Mustang & the trans combo shoots it 0-60 in 5.1 seconds (4.9 for the Mustang). If I can get the insurance money to repair the car & keep the car, why not drop that 5.5 in the JEEP?!

Whaddayathink? A little of the German side of the company mixed in with the American side of the company.

Has anybody put a Merc in a Jeep before? Would it fit? Is this a good idea?

I know people have put Merc. diesels in Jeeps, but I have never seen a gasser in one. That would be fun!
