You're most welcome.
As far as I know, the improved cylinder head protects the valve guides and seals much better therefore less possible engine oil consumption due to their wear and tear.
Forgot to say that this applies, as far as I know, to the 6 cyl. engines with 12 vales which are the engines with displacements 2.6 and 3.0 on w124 and the same plus 2.8 on w126.
A piece of info I learned from this community; Benzworld.
Much more details are there to be know and knowing what exactly is the engine you are aiming for will help. Then you can ask in the corresponding section for it. Not many people come here to the introduction section.
Best of luck finding what you need.
