    I am looking for a bit of info as to weather I can fit w124 gear into a gen 2 w126 diff. It is for a project as I want to fit an m104 into my w126. Thanks in advance lads

    Not sure on that one, but can you not use the diff from a 300se?

    I could but it is 3.46 and would prefer 3.07 as it will be revving too high on the motorway
