Hi everyone. I have a 82 380 sl which i crazy about,and slowly trying to re-do as much of the car as my wallet will handle, I've getting close to where i want to be the car. I have one major problem. The car has NO POWER. I've read wear a couple of you guys have spoke of putting a 500sl engine(same year era). I am on a quest to get more power. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. thanks
