The block is the same as the 603.971 that was originally offered in the vehicle.

So, the answer is yes.

Whats wrong with the oil pressure? 1.5 bar at 100C is great! The oil cooler is probably open, heck my 603 idles at 1 bar when its real hot. 100C at idle is an issue though. Budget some money for a cooling system overhual.

W210's are great cars, they are so easy to work on.

I would never consider such a W140, figure it ends about $5k-$6k. For another $5k you can buy a 3-5 year newer S320 with less then half the miles and in much better shape.

Also this car has the original guage cluster which is pretty rare, most broke a long time ago.
