w115 240d -> 5 speed transmission from a w123
i have a w115 240d with a 3.69, and feel that it revs a bit to much doing 60mph/100kmh, having found a 5 speed transmission from a w123 230e i am wondering how much trouble it would be replacing the the current 4 speed with that, or if that doesnt work how much trouble would it be fitting a 2.47 or something axle from a w116 se450, anyone done it?
(worth to mention is that the 240d engine is from a w123, so a tad more power, but i got a stock 240d 3.0 available, and might put that in later)
thanks in advance!
