please help

my name joe and I have set up my project for my w140 s280. I decied to change the 2800 cc to C36 amg engine. This should be so simple but the problem is when I set up the C36 engine to my W140 then the transmition should work normal but it work for only 3 days. The problem is the transmition is not work like it should be its can only uesed for the 3th gear and the other can not be used. So I try to solve the problem by trun back to use the s280 gearbox. The result is getting better the car can ran smoothly but less power the the gearbox for c36 by 30%. So I have some question, why I can not put the C36 gearbox to my w140. what I have done wrong coz I have seen many Mercedes chang the engine and gearbox to improve the performance. Please give me some suggestion.

Try asking on the W140 forum in the sedans section.
