I just noted you were looking at the 24 valve engine, which I believe was installed in the later W124 models over here. There was a body style change or upgrade at about that time, which may have made the engine space and mounting arrangement better suit the 24 valve engine. Once again, I think you can find the room, but how difficult the job will be in the details is beyond my experience. Good Luck, Jim
