I want to replace my 4EAT with a 5MT. Will the diffs that I used with the auto fit the manual?


Thanks, gang.

Maybe...

Your differential most likely has a 3.7:1 ratio, and the 5MT has a 3.9:1 ratio if it's from an n/a. If it's from a turbo car, the transmission most likely has a 3.7:1 ratio, so you can use your differential.

My diff's ratio is 4.44. I was wondering if I can remove the diff from the transmission and use my 4.44 instead.

The transmission and rear end that I have are from a '97 Outback Limited.
The car they're going into is an '88 XT6 .

I want to keep the 4.44 ratio but switch to a manual transmission, but I don't know if I can mate the front diff to a 5MT.
