I've got a vk 5 speed in my hk. Box uses the same crossmember and shifter location as an aussie box. Shifter does sit a bit higher tho so the floor may need massaging.
Clutch plate is a normal blue motor one, no reason why you couldn't use a red one and spigot and pull clutch.
Tailshaft is a touch shorter and uses a different output shaft spline so you must shorten the shaft and get the right yolk thingy.

Are you talking about using that Filipino pos that came out behind the 2.85 only waste of time they were a horrible box you'll regret it if you do. Edit as vk didn't have the 2.85 I must of never seen a vk 5 speed I don't like the vh 5 speed.

Hiding rust under body filler isn't actually repairing the car. Even harder to catch out bogmen these days as filler has metal fibres in it.

Pretty sure its a borg warner box

Vk box is not related to the filipiFilipino box. It is a euro built box related to the t5.

Check the 1st gear Ratios.

I wouldn't want 1st to be lower than you have now.

If it is, then I'd change the diff ratio to preserve 1st and raise 5th.

First is 3.19 to 1, aussie 4 speed 3.05 to 1. 2nd and 3rd are far better than the aussie box plus the .79 to one overdrive.
Personally running a vl 3.45 diff and hot 186 and gearing is perfect.
For aa 202 a 3.36 would probably work well.
Will get a picture when I get home.
