my 80 240D is slow but it goes anywhere I want it to
I suspect 500k plus miles, still makes 2k mile plus trips @35 mpg
No use worrying about blow by until it won't start or just chews through the oil.
As far as your engine/tranny swap, I hope your 240 engine is from a Euro and has the hydraulic pump attached to the head, or you will have a slow wagon with no hydraulic suspension...... No use having a wagon without SLS!
