M120, first or preferably second gen is the way to go for anyone having the itch to experience V12 ownership. They are the most reliable V12s, by a mile, more so than some other lesser cylinder count engines.
I personally loathe the older, four speed automatic trans, prefer the next generation five speed that came out 96.
As for the OP’s question, it would be possible, but then again, why?? Sometimes in life you should consider, “just because you can, you probably shouldn’t “
The car you have, only is the same in terms of body, EVERYTHING else is different in terms of engine, harnesses, engine management, etc. compared to the one with an M119.
If you do feel like you want to build an SL with a 6.0,M119, get the engine first. The generation of that will determine what year car you can drop that into. ‘90-‘92, ‘93-‘95, or ‘96-‘98.
