As far as I know those transmissions are the same. Might have to change the linkage, but otherwise yes it will work. I am not sure what tooth count shaft came in what vehicle so you may want to remove the extension housing and count the teeth on the output shaft of both. Sometimes a different speedo gear can correct it if they are different. I installed a s/c trans into a friends car with no problems a few years ago.
