Talking Converting my '01 to Turbo

Finally found a donor car for mine. My plan is to convert my '01 NA to an '03 GT setup. The donor is an automatic, and I plan on staying with the 5-speed, but I want the newer / Higher gear ratios.

The question is: What 5-speed trans is in the GT cars?

I found one from an '05 NA car with low miles, but afraid it won't hold up?

'03 T has a 'getrag' all N/A Pt / PL / JA manuals are T-350.

They'll hold up to boost, how much exactly?

Dunno and never will.

You do know you'll need the wiring harness and computer from the '03 for it to work, right?

Yeah, that's why I was looking for a donor car. Unfortunately the one I found is an automatic, that's why I asked about using a NA 5-Speed.
