Need more muscle

I recently purchased a 1982 380 SEC, and while the body is in great shape, it has motor and transmission issues. What would be a good replacement motor that will provide more power and a compatible transmission. I've read about Chevy small blocks being used in MB's, but I would prefer a larger Benz motor. What I want is a classy looking, hot rod MB. Thanks

That's a model W126. The W126 Forum would probably be the better place to ask.

Completing your profile, including year, model and location, would be useful to those that might be inclined to offer you help.
