BMW Gear set 3.91 on flea-bay Item number: 230605128217
So the short answer is NO but the long answer is YES.

That Toyota diff looks ideal. 110 km/h at 4000 rpm, ~137 km/h at top speed. It's even got things I can use to mount it to the wishbone of the car. Probably worth using the existing engine mounts wherever possible too. Rubber bushes are important for these applications Image
