if you use the zd30 bellhousing you will need to drill and tap a extra hole for the starter motor

You need a td42 gearbox cross member. Although I have fitted 2 NA td42s with the zd30 xmember no problem. I have also seen highmount turbo td42s fitted with zd30 xmember but the custom dump pipe required is millimeters away from the firewall
