That does make me think of one possible speedbump. I wonder if the 5 speed coming out of the wagon will have different connectors than the 6 speed going in? Even so, the reverse sensor from one trans to another can't be all that different, you could probably just spice the connector from the new trans onto the harness in the wagon.

Maybe you mentioned it in your original post, but are you planning on facelifting the wagon or will this be a pre-facelift ZHP?
