No. The T5 is the best option. Main reason if you can actually use a factory bellhousing. Sure a NV3500 is a better tranny but not sure about everything else. You run in having to buy adapters to run the dana 300 to keep the front output on the correct side.
I love mine. Sure they are weaker and will not last. Mine has only been on there about 8 years. I keep a spare.
That list may sound super intense but if you hunt parts you could come out total swap around $1000. Tranny and D300 will be around $600. $200 for clutch and $200 for driveshaft mods. It is not necessary to buy tom wood shafts like I did.
