bellhousing bolts up. you will need to use an ea82 flywheel, and the ea81 bolts.

you will need to transfer the ignition timing marks from the ea81 flywheel to the ea82 flywheel for the odeg mark. the holes on the ea82 flywheel are larger, but the ea81 bolts will bolt it on. use the complete dual range trans with flywheel, clutch, and 2 pc driveshaft. you might have to transfer the trans mount from the 4spd onto the spd, i cant remember, you might just be able to use the ea82 mount as it is
