    alright, i just picked up the pedal assembly and the boot/console piece. I just need a quadrant, lower trans/body boot, cable, shifter, and clutch assembly.

    For the lower boot assembly, i have a lower boot assembly from a T-5. Can I use that for the lower boot? i heard that the T-5 and T-45 are almost the same.

    is the auto and manual trans mounts the same? the trans mount on my car is brand new, not more than a few months old....

    Any tips/tricks, advisories i should know about? Might start on it this weekend.....install the pedals at least, know that one is gonna take a long while, gotta be a contortionist to get under that dash...lol

    Thanks guys!
     
  2. I'm not 100% sure... but...

    I do think that the T5 stuff will work on the T45

    and I believe that the the t45 cross member is different from the AOD...

    I believe i have a 4R70W.....its a 98GT....hell i cant tell the difference between an AOD and a 4R70W...lol
     
  4. I'm sorry... I forgot the 'E'... lol,

    What you have is a 4R70W which is an improved AODE
    There are two versions of the 4R70, one has a low first gear (the W designation) and the car version without.
    The difference between the AOD and AODE is the AOD is only hydraulic operated, while the AODE is a combination of hydraulic and computer operated.

    lol... kinda off topic, but there ya go

    Automatic/Manual GTs have the same crossmembers, cobras were different.
    You'll still need a different block plate.


    Pull the driver's seat out, should make it alot easier to get under the dash.
