So if I am switching my tranny in my 94 325i to a 5 speed M3 tranny from 95 M3, am I going to have to switch my Diff on my car? Need some opinions as Bruno was telling me that I should as I would be shifting out of first to fast. I am not doing the conversion until spring, and I have a UUS Stage 2 Flywheel going in with an E34 M5 Clutch kit from Charlie. I want to make sure that I do this right the first time, and get what ever parts I need to make it an easy swap. :confused:

Talk to mitch555, i believe he finished converting his 320i to standard. And i believe charlie should know a lot about it!

The engine is going to run faster than the regular standard cars. It'll use a bit more gas, but it should take off nice and quick. It won't hurt anything. Try it out that way and see what you think. SOme guys with 5spds switch to auto diffs to get the extra gearing.
