ok so i need some help fast. first gear and reverse are going out in my 1997 3.8l. i lifted it up to take a look at it and all the seals are leaking too. every shop in town is ridiculous to rebuild it but i found a t5 from a 1990 2.3l that had already been rebulit. my question is will the match up? I need to do this all pretty quick cuz i am moving across the country next week so some help fast would be great.

Yes, it will fit, but you need to modify your current car.
You need:
1. Pedals-this requires you taking out your dash to install.
2. Pilot bearing.
3. Computer.
4. Driveshaft-sometimes they fit, sometimes they don't. The lengths/yokes are sometimes different.
5. Flywheel.
6. Clutch cable.

That's about it off the top of my head.......
