I used these two resources to do the math and had a Trans shop do the deed..........T5 Speedo Hanlon T5 also needed an earlier model tailshaft as the bullit hole is larger on the Electronic drive.

More importantly, the alignment of the speedo hole is different than the sensor hole. The sensor hole aligns dead center to the output shaft, the speedo hole aligns to the side of the output shaft.

Yup sorry, neglected to mention that.............bottom line is you need an earlier gear drive tailshaft. If you can get one cheap enough it's less costly than the alternative, a conversion kit Cable X $300
