The 2.8 liter M110 six cylinder was offered in the 107 in Europe, but you could buy a lot of gas by the time you found all the parts to do the conversion.

107 engine conversion

How about replacing my present engine with a 560sl. What problems will I encounter other than pouring buckets of money into it. Can you give an overview. thanks
