Yes everything will bolt right up. No need to get the Cobra T45 actually you dont want it because it won't bolt up to your trans crossmember.

Not going to Woodward this year. To many Minivans and SUV's cruise Woodward and ruin it. But I think I'm gonna go to 28th st cruise the following weekend.
Sorry OP for stealing your thread. if you have any ? PM me I have done the swap

yeah they are right, but if you're gonna heavily mod ur car get rid of the t-45 both the GT and Cobra ones are junk and USUALLY dont last long unless you're close to stock power.. i had to say usually because u'll find someone with the factory freak t-45 thats handling like 500 whp.

TKO 500 FTW.

Like mentioned, you everything will match up fine. But start saving for a new tranny as you will need to upgrade to a TKO 500/600 or a T56. T45 are just crap for GT power and super crap for Cobra power.
