The next option up from a 3.69 would be a 3.46 which was used in the 300D N/A. Acceleration is going to be slow though. I hope you live in a flat part of the country.

There is also another between those two, a 3:58. I just came across one at PNP in a 84 Grey Mkt 230-E.

I was thinking of pulling it and the 150mph spedo. would look good in my 240D

Anyone that thinks a 240D is slow drives too fast.

80 240D Naturally Exasperated, 4-Spd 388k DD 150mph spedo 3:58 Diff
