AMG Mercedes-Benz 190E Engine Swap

We get questions concerning performance modifications on a regular basis. Can anyone answer this question from a fellow AMG enthusiast? Misha asks:

Hi,

I have a 1984 Mercedes-Benz 190E AMG with an 2.0L 8v 4 cylinder engine and I'm thinking of changing the engine to a 2.3L 16V 4 Cylinder engine. I would just like to know if there was anything installed by AMG back in the mid 80's when my car was modified that would make the engine swap very difficult to do. I have been told that there was lots of sensors put on the car by AMG. Where can I find info on what modifications AMG did to my car? Thanks

Editor's Note: If you have an answer, please leave it in the comment section below. 

It is hard to say what AMG mods were included during the 1980s. There is little documentation and Daimler obtained few records from AMG at the time of the acquisition (1990s). One place to check might be the Mercedes-Benz Classic Center. The techs at the center may have been involved with a restoration project for that model.

Classic Center – Irvine, CA Ph: 866-622-5277
When I visited the Mercedes-Benz Classic Center they had a large inventory of parts and they were in the process of restoring several vehicles. The staff is very helpful with respect to answering questions, finding parts and accessories.
