What engine is this?

And will this really drop right into a 300E?

Looks like the 24 valve - DOHC - M104
I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong.

Is '91 the first production year for the M104? I know the 300CE got it in '91 and apparently the 300sl as well. The 300E didn't get an M104 until '93 .... still wondering if this would drop right into a 300E without too much modifications.

I know that the US got it later than the rest of the world. I believe it was used in 300CE's (88?) in Europe.
