You can drop any motor into any car you want if you have any amount of time and money!! I guess the first question is are we dealing with a 123 or a 115. I've heard rumor that the 123 was out in euro in 76. It would be a prety easy drop in w/ a 123 as the SD motor was the same as in a 123 turbo. If you've got a 115 you could be looking at a motor mount issue, and I'm not sure how well it would bolt up to the tranny. They are all 617 engines, so it is more feasable than trying to drop in a S600 motor!!
Good Luck!

Curious too about a an SD/300D turbo motor in a 115.
Have a 72 280SE with a 115/300D conversion. Would be really fast with a 300D turbo. Just today renewed inspection on our 72 250C 114/gas car. Dual Webber upgrade with CDI. Really feels good to drive in the
the same body as a 115 diesel.
