Hi Eric,

No, that switch unfortunately will not work. The Borg Warner T5 backup light switch and harness plug are totally different than the stock Corvair setup.

Looks good Kent glad to see it finally coming all together. Must be a cool feeling when you get to slide it into that 5th gear.

Kent, if you don't mind my asking, what kind of cam do you have? I'm a sucker for watching the needle of the tach swing fast to redline!
