im pulling this engine as a potential candidate t drop in my w123. my 280e burns oil so bad it misfires. also a few plugs were damaged from the oil. i got the car this way. its a grey market 280 with cloth seats manual windows and roof 4 speed and eurobumpers. the 280 engine has 120k miles. i suspect valve seals but have not looked into it.
i want the 450 as a back up in case my 280 is gonna need lots of repair
the 450 has 110k miles runs real good and shifts good.
or my other option is to sell the 450 and use the money for the 280
hope this makes sense
