Hello, new to the vintage section

And for some reason I have a feeling everyone will soon hate me. I am currently looking for a w114 ce to do a v8 swap in. I will be using a ls1 motor and trans from a 99 camaro. This would be my third v8 swap into a european car... Call me a butcher if you like.

I am curious about rear differential gears and limited slip units and brakes. I am obviously looking for bigger and better substitutes here. If anyone can point me in the correct direction I would appreciate it. I have seen one w114 that is being swapped on the modified car forums.. Anyone know where I can find another one?

Thanks
Ryan

I'm a fan of engine swaps, especially if it makes a 114 move with some respectable power! I had given thought to doing up my 114 (I've since sold it), but the engine bay is small. You'll need to do some timkering, cutting, etc. As you do the job, post pics and keep us in the loop!
