Yeah a T5 would prolly be better. I was just thinking of something really old-skool (3spd column? LOL). Then again, the extra cog is always handy!
There would obviously be more changeovers than just the motor. I'm guessing the exhaust (custom? EA manifold, XR-XC exhaust shape), cooling system, steering, brakes, etc would need changing too. And, if fitting a T5, a different tranny mounting section (?) & different clutch.
