I'd say the physical dimensions will work, might be some minor ratio changes which cause the suffix to change.

I've swapped a couple of W126 trannies around, all fit fine.

Ratio's are the same. There are some internal updates that you'll miss out on..most notably the improved/re-designed B2 Piston that won't explode around the 130K mark.

I'd replace the B2 while you have it out..
