5 Speed Into EA ???

Heres my Dilemma

Im about sick of my 3 Speed Borg Warner Slushbox
So I Was Thinkin About a T5OD Manual
Although i have a good idea of what im up against
i would like to hear from people who have done this conversion into an
EA 1 GL Everything required and what problems (if any) they have come up against
Any help would be much appreciated
Thanx

Also I would like to get bits that will just bolt up without modification (original T5) because if i have to modify anything i will have to get a LOW VOLUME VEHICLE CERTIFICATE

p.s do i have to get a different driveshaft?

Re: 5 Speed Into EA ???

Mr Stockstandard, i hate to sound like an asshole but i have already
read that thread and it is a conversion of an EA Box into an EB
i would like to hear from anyone who has done a conversion of an EA box into an EA not an EA box into an EB or an EF Box into an EA or a ED box into an EA etc. etc. etc. an EA Box into an EA
also my original box is the Borg Warner M51 if the conversion is different from the BTR 85 LE

All 5 speed boxes from EA to AU (and possibly others) are physically exactly the same so there is no difference there, so it wont matter if you drop in a EA, EB, ED, EF, EL or AU box, the process will be exactly the same. I posted the link because the guide mentions when you have to change drive shafts - which is one difference between switching from a 4 speed or 3 speed.
