6 speed manual swap for 190?

Found this site

http://www.geocities.com/shvoldum/main.html

Click on "Engine Conversions" to the Left
Scroll Down and Click on "Mercedes Benz 190E Sportline DTM Cosworth" in the middle

The gearbox isn't quite up there with the rest of the car though. At least not yet. After dropping one already, he had installed a 300D gearbox. A tip from the journalist immediately makes him call a friend who has a spare BMW M3 six speed gearbox. After a few quick measurings he discovers that it fits and voila, he's got himself an M3 gearbox!
Thought the note about swapping a M3 6 speed mated to the Cosworth was interesting. Does this get anyone's wheels turning on possiblities with OM60x motors? I wonder what kind of bellhousing he used to get the BMW tranny and MB motor mated?

As long as the proposed transmission has a removable bellhousing, and the motor you want to attach it to had a tranny with a removable bellhousing, it is relatively easy to mate the new tranny to the old bellhousing with an adaptor and/or some machining. I am working on a similar swap currently. It's about #308 on my list of things to do.

Yeah, I seem to make my list longer, instead of making it shorter. Just thought I would throw out a link incase someone was looking for ideas.

Always a good thing. I know I'm constantly looking for new ideas.
