W116 V8 engine in W108?

I've got a 1968 W108 250S with no engine. I also have a W116 M116 engine from a 1973 350SE. Would it be possible to combine the two?

big time, big trouble, big expense, but do-able with time and money

I have the motor and trans (280S) ready to bolt in and go,
under 8 hours labor.

The engine will fit but you would need a donor V8 108 car for all the parts needed. The D-jet would be very difficult to install. You will need 108 4.5 engine supports as the 116 ones are different.
