send a Private Message to Bratsrus1 here on the board... He makes a kit that will allow you to bolt in a 5 speed with little to no modification... Even uses the stock levers inside.

Does it need the ea82 flywheel?

I'm about to do a 5 speed conversion - I've bought the box etc but not the flywheel as of yet.
