It depends on what the Donor car has in it. Its either gonna be a Getrag 282 or 284. The only problem with the 282 is that its not supposed to be able to handle much power. But anyways, it will probably end up being a 282 since I know someone that is considering parting out a non-turbo version of my car (other than not having a turbo and having a 5 speed it is identical).

My tranny isn't electronic, so the shift points aren't controlled by the computer, however there is something that has to be changed in the computer for the 5 speed to work (and I'm pretty sure they raise the idle speed higher also, to like 900rpm IIRC).
