I don't have the info in front of me, but you're going to run into a speed sensor difference using that newer (98+) trans in the -96 car.

One pulls the speedo info from the ABS system and the other has it on the trans itself.

(I want to say the later cars use the signal from the ABS system)

My swap was a '96 trans into a '97 car, so I had no issues.
'78 264GLE
'97 854 T5 (Manual swap/COP/16T/P2R brakes)
'80 264GLE (B21FT/M46/MS) - SOLD '77 242DL (B21F/M45) - SOLD '75 245DL SOLD '85 244GLT DEAD
'83 Tbird Turbo (2.3T/T5/MegaSquirt)
