I‘m dropping a 88 turbo coupe 2.3 mated to a T5 in my 1984 2.0 automatic and the driveshaft sleeve doesn’t fit the tranny output shaft. Plus since the transmission case is a little longer it looks like the driveshaft would be too long. Should I just get a yoke that fit the transmission and mount the engine a little further forward or get a new driveshaft. If so, from what?
thanks!

A drive shaft company should be able to cut your current drive shaft to the length you need and might cause less headaches.
