95 GT swapped MT doesn't line up with crossmember
Hey guys so I just bought my 95 GT a few weeks ago. I replaced the tranny mounts and saw that the crossmember doesn't line up with my 5 spd. The previous owner told me that the tranny originally came aode from the factory, but the owner before his swapped in a 5spd. The mounting holes on the tranny are too far forward (towards the engine) to reach the cross member. I have a mounting plate with my tinny mount set up to make it reach but I would like to know which tranny this could be. To my understanding, only T5s fit. Obviously the oem 94-95 bolt up but from old fox bodies they are a little shorter so that may explain it. I have two thoughts here. A = the aode and T5 crossmembers are in different locations and I have a T5 that simply doesn't fit it. Or B = I have a different transmission such as possible the old fox body transmission. It's only maybe an inch or two short, but it's enough even with a modded mounting plate to fit. Could someone explain to me how I would be able to differentiate the trannys or if they've had this happen to them maybe shed some light? Thanks guys!
