I acquired R107 headers per what I read online. They don't give you enough room to get the M117 into the W114.

I also acquired 380SE (M116) headers. These and the R107 450SL headers are both...

Anyone know what the weight difference is between the OM617 turbo and M110? Maybe I should try to get the front springs from a 280E.

Is the oil pan on a M110 the same between the W116 and W123?

I have a W116 280S with the venerable M110 engine. The engine is fine, but I have an M117 V8 that I'm going to put into it.
