    Starting a new project taking my 05 gt and installed a 2011 gt500 drivetrain (tranny-motor) I got the 2011 body harness and (CAN). I'm going to attempt what Lito did by combining the harnesses and making the stock 05 gauges work. So far the motor and tranny are in. They went very easy no the hard part comes (the wiring) Ive got the 05 stripped back to start swapping the wires around.

    The body harness is in went pretty easy I had to cut the seat belt pins out of the old harness and soder the old to the new harness and the tailights I used the old tailights since they are updated led already so I soder them in and then headlights on new harness is HID and they car is already updated so I just cut the new harness and soder old HID harness to it. So far not bad. The door harness plugged into the 05 door harness. Does anyone know if the wires are the same? Can I 05 door panels with the 2011 dash?
