Question A Cosworth in my W115

Well a few things have changed since i last posted as i've swapped the 69 220 auto for a 70 220 manual. This was all down to the fact that my big plans for squeezing the 560 engine in to the W115's bay was not going to work with out some serious cutting and fabrication and as i have neither the skill nor the money to get that project of the ground i thought i'd go a different route.
I managed to swap the auto for a manual version as my new plan of action is to put all the running gear from a 190 2.3 16v in to the w115. I've already bought the Cosworth and its being trailered over to me next week as its from a salvage yard but i've had a little play in it (on private ground of course ) and it drives nicely.
Has anybody tried a conversion like this as i can find no info out there that has done similar?
Anyway i'll be posting pretty regularly with my progress so if anyones got any useful tips or help they can give i'd be more appreciative

Hi! sounds like a cool conversion! I guess you'll need the fuel tank from a /8 280E
Are you planning any brake upgrades?
