FYI I have a Marpet style MMU+Shifter SIMM adaptor upgrade in my 520ST like this:

I have to say, it's a snug fit, but was the only way to get the machine working easily, because there were so many issues with the onboard RAM.

The upgrade exxos posted a link to is the much more modern equivalent of the Marpet, so I'd recommend you go for that.
Collector of old Atari things:
800XL + Ape Warp mod, 2x 1010 cassette, 1050 + Happy mod, 65XE (128k) & XC12, SIO2SD, 2600jr, 7800 and Lynx II
Atari 520ST (1Meg) + Gotek, 1040STFM + Vortex ATOnce + Gotek, 1040STF long button floppy, 4160 STE with Gotek and ROM switcher, 4160STE with 32Mhz booster, ROM switcher and CosmosEx, not to mention various bare ST boards for testing including a PAK 68/2 :)
Plus the rest..
Amiga stuff, Mac stuff, Sinclair stuff etc...
