4 speed to 5 speed gearbox conversion Question (again?)

Hi all is there a link to the mods needed to convert a 1985 S3 4 speed chassis to a 5 speed.

I am quite aware that there are significant mods need to the chassis, and I have no issue tackling the job

I have T9 with gear change extension and I know I need a Speedo angle drive and prop shaft I have have a friend with a latter 5 speed gear so I have a bit of an idea.

I looking for some tech drawings including actual tube size and locations.

The 5 speed support sits a bit further in the chassis tunnel easily fixed with an additional plate from the original mounting. By gear change extension you mean a raised pivot point ?

New clutch assembly

Angle drive

Speedo cable

tunnel top cover

Propshaft

Good insight.

I do have a a compatible clutch.

This car is an Australian delivered Kit  with a 4 speed Escort box ( sadly not a rocket box) and has a specially designed extension change which is listed in the manual.

A Tunnel Top cover?
