Thanks, but I've already got an NB with the NB starter. Sounds like it should just drop in pretty easily.

I used my NA starter on my 6-speed the with the NB plate...one of the bolts wouldn't go through... I forget which one now but I had no issues other then that... 2 bolts to hold starter is tons.

There is a stamped plate that goes between the engine/transmission. It's different between the NA and the NB. The difference is where the starter bolts up. Either use your old plate and ream out the correct hole for the starter, use the NA starter, or else buy a new plate for all of $20. Additionally, I have no evidence that suggests the plate is absolutely required in the first place...
The plate has a ground wire and holds the oil dipstick tube in place.
