you will need a custom bell and a way to run the TV/kickdown cable.

I am trying to get mine running on a GM OBDII box so I can maybe have the option of a 4L60E in the future.

retainer bore on the bell is smaller than a T5 retainer (not by much as it will wiggle around on the chamfers of the two parts)
