Post 1997 MB S420 Milage

I got a 1997 MB s420 can i change mileage when i change engine in the car.
My engine got stock after 179K miles, I bought a new engine with only 81K miles... how should I change the mileage?

Another problem arose when I changed the engine was original to the car radio does not work, it comes up a picture "CODE" I've never seen before on display. What is this?

Welcome to Benzworld.

Even if the engine was replaced odometer fiddling is a no no in all 50 states. Keep the receipts and show to a buyer if you ever sell the car so they know the engine is much younger than the chassis.
