I'm curious if anyone has any information on swapping engines with something more modern that delivers stronger and smoother power. I don't want to dump an LS or any other engines that can deliver tons of horsepower, but I'm looking for something that is smoother and more reliable. I was thinking about the V8 engine from an early 2000's Mercedes E430 which puts out a decent amount of smooth power. Not sure if it would even fit in my 1981 380SL so if anyone has any experience with this swap or any other more modern engine swaps please let me know if you have any information on it. I'm also open to different recommendations on engines that work with the car. Thanks again!
