FWIW,  the going rate for complete V8 rear diffs is around $300-$500 
used.   There was a "group buy"  on the S car list for $300 a year or 
two ago, with 15 or  so getting shipped over from Germany.  My guess is 
that we could get similar pricing if we could get ten or so ordered so 
that shipping would not drive the price up to high.

Remember that if you buy new, you will also need the V8 flanges.
