Transmission questions

Assuming I install the trans on a 200Q with engine that will deal with torque, will it
work OK - bolt up using 200 flywheel and clutch and work OK with final drive to rear
diff?  I don't think gear ratio would be a problem unless the first gear were especially
high.  I was looking to mate the trans with a more powerful I5 engine - although it
would not be as torquey as the V8 to be sure.

Yikes.  That is...unusual.

The 5-speed?  No, the gearing is different for the torque-y V8.
You're far more likely to find a 200q20v transmission, regardless.
