Yeh all you say and more - plus speedo - your car probaly has a mechanical speedo whereas later models have electronic - plus different wheel sizes - need I go on - your car also wont have an ECU to match the new stuff you put in DOH!

PS. Yeh the mountings are different as well

I think you can do a very easy box swap on the Mk1 if you have a late 4 speed and get an early 5 speed box
