Engine swap for a 108/109 chassis
Has anyone here given thought to dropping the 5.6L from a 560SEC/SEL into the 108/109 chassis? If so, what problems did you find? It seems that replacing the old 4.5L with an alloy block 5.6 (~200lb. less weight) would make sense from a performance standpoint (obviously none of this is for economic reasons!) I was considering it for my '72 280SEL 4.5.
My thoughts were to add a more modern fuel injection control system such as those from FAST. (This is the one that Karl Middelhauve uses for his M-100 conversions).
Anyone have any thoughts???
