    Oh and for clarification there is no 3400 disc. 3400s never came with a manual transmission just the 3.4 RWD.

    No no no. The T5 that comes behind a 3800 in its natural habitat has the 'Ford' style trans-bellhousing pattern. The bellhousing pattern is NOT the same as the trans-bellhousing pattern.
