Maybe I'm wrong but I thought OBD2 cars are a nightmare and a half because the computer needs to be reprogrammed. Not to mention the 7 would have to use a custom length driveshaft since that transmission never came with that engine in the 78? The 840ci is a different story since they actually came with 6spd from factory. In Europe at least.
