Honestly, DONT EVEN GO NEAR THAT RUST BUCKET, unless you want specific parts that have not rusted away lol. You will spend way more on getting the interior up to scratch along with rust removal and respray then you would on a nice 450SL, and if your planing on having it drive well you will need to replace all the rubber mounts, guides etc, steering couplings etc etc etc you will be able to get a nice 560SL. These cars are very hard to do up from a bad state, much cheaper easier and quicker to spend some extra dough and get one that is drivable and in reasonable condition.
Dont think of the MSII mod as just away to save a dead motor, think of it as a way to show the true power of these german V8s so get something nice to start with.
The EDIS 8 was the way i was going to do my car, but in Australia there are almost no cars that run EDIS-8 so i went for the direct control approach, its better this way just a little harder to do.
