Engine transplant (w126)

I have a "280" SE with a bad Motor and im looking into replacing it with a 560 engine...Will this be a major deal or easy as 1.2.3?

Has anyone done this?

If the 560 engine has KE-Jetronic, there will be some electronics to add to your car.

Reference material


Do a search on Mercedes Enthusiast magazine, in their advertisement it looks like one of their issues (I think it is this month's but I'm not sure) discusses this type of transplant.
Does a Caddy stretch? No, but a Mercedes bendz.
