It`s MUCH smaller and weaker than the M3 box. As a clue, the Getrag 265 in the M3 was the strongest tranny BMW had at the time; it came from the 1981 533i.

If I were to use the gearbox from a 318/320 (M10) with an S14 motor, how long should I expect it to last before dissintegrating?

anybody has any experience with this?
