Why not a CIS 104 motor? (3.0 - from a 300CE or SL)

227hp vs. 201 for the m116. 7000 RPM redline is unique.

Looks like the mounts are the same (obviously both motors were in the same car). No fabrication, totally stock, more power, and you can stick with CIS (a good or bad thing, depending on your point of view.
