I can get hold of a low Klm vn 5 speed I know the input shaft is longer on the holden T5 but could i change it with the EA T5 to suit my EA bell housing and would the output shaft be the same spline as the for or is the holden one different?

I am asking this as i open up the EA T5 I have and the LAY SHAFT has broken teeth on it and the reverse gear is half worn the teeth on it too but for $160 for a secondhand lay shaft I can get the holden VN T5 for $100 any ideas what I can do or what way I should go?

just fond out today from a T5 specialist you can use a VN T5 but you need to cut and shut the input shaft to make it shorter and redo the spline other than that they are identical

It can be done but to do it properly you need to pull both boxes apart and swap the input shafts over

i have done it and its a s**t of a job in the end it wasent worth the effort
