    The previous owner installed a TKO in my 1996 Cobra about 2,000 miles ago. I'm taking it out and putting the T45 back in. I have tried everything and can't get the damn TKO to stop vibrating so its getting the boot. This Cobra will be my daily driver anyways, so I'm not worried about the T45's longevity. I plan on selling the TKO/bellhousing off to fund the T45 rebuild.

    Will I have to replace the flywheel, clutch, pressure plate, etc? I'm not sure if the input shafts are at all similar between the two transmissions.

    Thanks!

    aww ur taking out a TKO? damn... could just be the mounts or ur shifter... might want to check that,, the TKO is by far better... but is somewhat limited on how you race it due to not revving as high... T-56 would be the best one.. but the t-45 will be fine if u dont plan on doing to much to ur car...

    You should not have to replace the clutch or fly wheel, unless the clutch is worn. The input shaft should be the same. I am about 99.999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999% sure of that.

    A TKO has a 26 spline input shaft, which is a GM style clutch. stock is like 6 or 8 spline
