Depends on how you intend driving it. Is it a stock 5spd?

You may need an adapter plate and different length tailshaft, but like jonoo not %100.

Nupe, the torque of the V8 would kill it very quick, even driving like an old man/woman.

They dont bolt up for starters and they are renowned for there weakness and being able to be broken by a 202.

Dont even consider using it, they didnt release it with the EFI 202 because that would break it in no time. Find a T5 or M21 or something. Using it will only end in tears........

even an m20/21 will have issues. mine is a bit tempremental and i drive my vb like an old man 90% of the time. reverse gear crunches every other go and 3rd crunches about 25% of the time. id suggest getting a falcon t5 or a supra 5 speed if you have the money

Yours sounds like she could do with a rebuild or try some different oil, pretty much any gearbox will crunch into reverse.
