i believe that the driveshafts are the same, i'll do some lookin around see if i can find out about the mount but i would think its the same too. why get a t-45? find a tko 500 or 600

yea but i had a ton of problems with my t-45, they have all kinds of problems with shifter forks breaking. I upgraded to a tko and love it, you might be able to find one locally or just call one of the trans shops and buy a new one and have it shipped, i have no idea about the speedo issue either

there is nothing wrong with t-45's.
mine bit the dust but that was after 119k miles and hella abuse.
but my new rebuilt one is the shit.

t-45 with tri-ax shifter.
i love it.


and yes i think the use differnt mounts.

you should just post an add localy for a swap. most guys who spend any amount of time at the track will usually swap their stick to an auto at some point so you may well find someone to swap you straight across & it wouln't cost you anything.

not sad really. if you want to be compeitive at bracket racing or get a higher horsepower car down the track safely (& go faster in the process) no real way to have a stick in your car.
