    Hey guys, I posted about this on Corral but just wanted to see if anybody here has some input as well.

    I'm looking to install a 04 T5 in my 95 GT. I have a speedcal so I'm leaving the trans as is.

    From what I've read, all I will have to do is elongate the mounting holes on my crossmember.

    Anybody on here done this swap and know if that's all there is to it?



    Thanks!

    The v6 T5 is identical to the 94/95 T5's. Tremec took over production from BW in the mid 90's.

    The 94-95 V6 T5 has a weaker gearset and different 5th gear ratio. 99-04 T5 has same gears and torque rating as 94-95 but VSS is different. it uses a magnetic pickup. The options are to swap the tailhousing and perform some mods to use the 94-98 VSS. The alternative to that is to get a speecal box.

    The tailhousing on a 99 is different and crossmember location isnt the same as 94-98. The question is all that I have to do is elongate the holes on my stock crossmember?
