yep, you can fit any w201 or w124 diff in there. your best bet would be a 3.07 or 3.27 lsd though. forget about fuel economy, you want limited slip capability on your car

I have found the 201's extremely reliable and economical. The 2.2's consistently return 40+ mpg, the 2.5 mid to high 30's. My mileage is 98% flatland highway driving at 63+/- mph. I generally will only hit 2-3 stop signs in a hundred miles and I am easy on the takeoff. Mileage suffers with a 50/50 mix of #1 & #2 fuel in the winter. PowerService adds 3-4 mpg in any weather. Red juice further improves mileage 2-4 mpg (not that I would use it), veg reduced the mileage on the 2.2 to high thirties.

I believe he is referring to "off-road diesel", heavy fines if caught using it on the roads. Red dye is added to differentiate it from pump diesel.
