It is coming along. The car is a 90 loyale turbo. I have to mod the axles from 4eat to make them fit the 5 speed non turbo from a GL. I was planning on switching doj cups but I thought that maybe the tranny stubs could be switched instead. Is there a difference in the stubs housing to tranny between a 4eat from a 90 turbo and a 5 speed non turbo from an 87 GL.
Thanks

Just switching axles would be a lot easier. 23 spline NA manual axles will fit right in there unless you have done a 5 lug conversion or something.

So you are saying that there is an axle that will fit on to the 5 speed non turbo transmission and into the knuckles from my turbo auto? I didnt think there were any. I Have the axles that go with the 5 speed so I figured I would try and make those work instead of dropping 140 bucks on an all new axle set up.

yes, the knuckle side of all EA82 axles except for the XT6 will fit into each other.

Precisely.


Hint: the hubs are the same Turbo to NA EA82 cars. Its only the DOJ end thats different.


<----------------Done a couple of 5 speed swaps

I am wanting to know if the tranny stub from my 4eat will it into the trany stub port of my 5 speed, My axles are a different spline count so I would have to go new axles and the ones I have are new.

for the sake of complicatedness, I would replace the axles, not the tranny stubs.

I want to replace the tranny stubs as I had to do it on my 4eat and it was very easy. Just one c clip to deal with. So should I just pull on the tranny stubs on the 5 speed as hard as I can to pop them out, or is there another way?\
Thank You aLL
