    I'm trading a friend a sm 465-205 for his turbo 400-205. I haven't had a chance to measure the difference between the two. Will the drive shafts be different length and will the cross member be in a different location?

    I just swaped out my th400 to a sm465/205 combo. I had to get differnt drive shafts and I had to drill 4 new holes for the cross member.
