280 SL Engine Swap

I'm thinking of swaping a 1983 280sl motor into my 1985 380sl which only has 155 hp and is hell with fuel consumption, the 280Sl which has 185hp and better fuel consumption. ive done engine swaps before on my brothers honda W/Acura Motor (Merc is a different monster), is there any advise anyone could give? I do know already about the fuel management sys and all that good stuff, but is there any major bumps out there
