Alternate manual transmission for 2.3 16v?

Hello
I am looking for an alternate transmission to use on my 1986 cosworth cosworth. Has anyone used a BMW getrag or any other 5spd/ 6spd transmission? Since the cossie transmission is difficult to find, and not good for 300 hp, I want something that would work with stock ECU.
Any responses will help. I've read this: http://forum.190rev.net/showthread.p...56-and-a-Turbo
but did not offer much help.

Thanks
Gus

New, old Mercedes and REAL AMG's.
If I am not mistaken the getrag from the E30 M3 and the 190E-16V are the EXACT SAME ONE.

Unfortunately those transmissions are hard to come by also. Any other alternatives? I don't mind bell housing modification.

Don't know about alternatives, but if cost is no object, check with a dealer - as recently as two years ago M-B had a stock of rebuilt 5-speed transmissions for the 16 valve in Germany. Not cheap (around $4K with core),
