, I am looking used engine car, but I have

Resolved Question:

Hello, I am looking for a used engine for my car, but I have some troubles:
-My car was made in 1995 (sold in 1996) with a chassis number WDB2100551J and type E 320 (petrol), automatic 4 S, with an engine 104.995 of 3.2 L, and with a gearbox 722329. I have seen two possibilities:
1) An engine that comes from an E class Mercedes Benz of the year 1996 (W210) with a chassis number WDB2100531A and it is a 2.8 L engine, model M104.945 with gearbox 722424.
2) An engine that comes from an E class Mercedes Benz of the year 1996 (W210) with a chassis number WDB2100551A and it is a 3.2 L engine, model M104.992 with gearbox 722329.
The question is if any of these engines do will fit my car without problems. I would appreciate if you could help me. Thank you.

Hello,
The second option will fit without any major problems. The differences are minimal, like different cam lobe profile. But it should run perfecly fine.
