Inner CV spline count on box is different - 25 spline and larger diameter.

Gearbox mounts or matching member mods required, longer tail shaft or L series two piece unit fits with a mount made for the centre bearing and gear selector linkages may need mods to fit.

Flywheel needs attention to mate L series clutch pressure plate.

Basically search info for L series 5spd conversion as that's basically what you're about to do ;)
Cheers

Just open up the trans and swap in the 23 spline stubs. The rest is easy.
