Dont hold me to this but I believe the tranny is the same btw gen3's used the 2.3 in 98 they went to the 2.5. In fact I am almost 100% sure now that I think about it. there was a guy with a gen3 who swapped in a 2.5 with his stock transmission.

Well, determined ya'll are right! Its the same transmission except that the 96' tranny has a speedo sensor on the tail of the tranny whereas the 00' tranny does not. Instead there is thing that looks like a freeze plug in its place. It took about two hours to get it out. It was actually easy to get out. I think i had more problems taking my tow hooks off of my truck than we did his tranny...lol
