you want to install the 400E motor into a 300CE?

I bought a 400E parts car to install into my 300E. lots of $ later it's not inside my 300E. they told me it wouldn't fit or rather it would cost about $5000+ just to install it.

let me know your progress, I sure wish it fit my car

that 4.2L motor is not looked on very kindly..All the techs I have spoken with say it is prone to issues you don't see w/ the 5.0 m119. But if it's what you have floating around why not.. You might try talking to Motorwerks in Detroit... But as an aside you have a LOT of hard/laborious work ahead of you!
