Mercedes 380 SL engine swap to euro m116

Hi,
I’m new here.
I have a 380SL -84 with bad engine.

I live in Sweden so it’s easy for me to find euro engines.

If I swap to a m116.963 or m116.965 euro engine can I just move fuel system, injectors, oil pan, filter etc from my US m116.962?

Can I use my original ECU?

Appreciate all help

Thanks

Are you required to keep the pollution control system? If so then what you describe is correct. You don't need to swap the injectors. If the 4.2 is KE-Jet you will need the distributor from yours.

I’m not required to keep the pollution system.

If possible I would keep the 4,2 or 3,8 euro as intact as possible.

Will all parts fit from my m116.962?

I don't know about the 4.2. The 3.8 should.
