I don't know that for sure.
You will have to check the mounting bolt pattern, the length and driveshaft connection type, the length, size and tooth count of the input shaft and the hole size in the bell housing to see if it will fit.

You will need to use the bell housing from the 94 since the input shaft is a little longer than the old T4. The driveshaft will work fine.

So by the way in case this comes up again the trans will bolt up i needed the bell housing from the 94 but i also had to go get a 94 starter because they are different from the 82 to the 94 also i am going to Need to find a h pipe for a 94 and rework the exhaust cuz the 82 y pipe hits the fork that holds the throw out bearing

Re: trans

Yea going from the sn-95 to the fox parts can be tricky because everything got confined starting in 94. But an H-pipe is way better anyway

I could be wrong, but wouldn't just get an h pipe for a fox? The only thing different in a fox and sn95 bell housing is the sn95 bell is 5/8" bigger. I can see the y pipe not working, but I bet a fox h would.

P.s. This is just my assumption, I dont experience with this swap.

Use a Fox H-Pipe. I've read that the socket end that bolts to the headers is different on 94-95.. Believe the 94-95 may be larger which may not be an issue, but then again it might. Using fox parts would be best. Also use the 94-95 bell to avoid fittment issues, as stated above the input shaft is longer.
