4th Gen Pedals and Hydraulics for T5 Swap

I'm doing a t5 swap and I have everything for the car except pedals and slave and hydraulic setup. I do have a 94 3.4 5 speed Camaro that I can use for parts is it possible to use the 4th gen setup with the t5 for a thirdgen. I've read about 4th gen pedals not sure on the slave cylinder with the full setup if it could be used.

Add your car and engine type for better answers.
V6 4th gen T5 doesn't bolt to a third gen V8 T5 bellhousing.
Google V6 T5 V8 thirdgen.org and read read read until you find why else it doesn't work.
I assumed a few details because you posted too few details.

I've got a thirdgen v8 t5 and a 350 just missing the two things. Transmission is right along with spline and bellhousing. I just use the fourth gen for parts if that makes more sense wasn't gonna pull the stuff just to see if it would work.

Re: 4th Gen Pedals and Hydraulics for T5 Swap

The 93-02 pedals have a shorter throw for activating the master cylinder, since the stud on the pedal is higher.

The concentric slave cylinder and bearing retainer on the 4th gen T5 could work on the third gen V8 T5, but wouldn't do any one item better than just getting third gen parts. I would be hesitant to go to a concentric style when the third gen style works, and is serviceable without dropping the trans.

Re: 4th Gen Pedals and Hydraulics for T5 Swap

Just an update on using the slave cylinder. 93 to 95 3.4 cars use an external slave cylinder. I am going to use it and the pedals there may be modifications that our needed but it hooks the same way on the bellhousing and at the pedals, and since I'm using the pedals from the same car shouldn't be an issue in my case. So you can use the slave cylinder in this case but only if it came from a car with a 3.4. GM for some reason when they went to the the 3.8 they changed the slave cylinder to an internal style setup. Hope this helps someone out just figured I would post on the information I found out when I pulled the transmission and slave cylinder from the 94 Camaro I have.
