Question 280S - compact engine swap...

Hi everyone;

I am currently doing some work to my W114 230.6 which will include an engine & trans swap from a '76 280S donor car.

I was wondering (aside from the firewall which has been taken care of) if this will be a direct slip in swap with regards to subframe, engine mounts, driveshaft, wiring, and so on?

Also, since this is a carby fed twin cam motor what would be involved in converting it to fuel injection and is it worthwhile?

I have also been told that the front subframe on my 114 is most likely bent (will be taking it out this week), if so is the 280S one transferable?

Looks like I've got a big couple of weeks ahead :-)
