New guy from KY needing engine help

Just purchased my first Mercedes. It's a 1985 380 SL thats in need of a new engine. My first thought is to go with something a little bigger but don't know if the 380s computer and fuel management system will allow that without changing those also. Any advise would be much appreciated from those who have already tried or done this before.

Thanks !
