For the most part yes. You'll need the rear motor mount bracket off of the 9-3 trans and then you're good to go. Also hydraulic clutch.

The other difference you'll probably notice when driving with a 9-3 trans is that the gears are different. From my experiences, the ng900 trans was more fun for me.

Careful what year the trans comes from. Not sure if it was 2000 or 2001, but at some point they stopped having the cast for a cable (if your '95 is still cable operated)

Also, the 9-3 trans uses manual transmission fluid, different from the ng trans

If you have the time and money, definitely opt in for the 9-3 trans and hydraulic clutch assembly.

my '98 NG900 Turbo came with it standard from the factory and its the best NG900 i've ever driven/owned. not to mention I also got the 9-3 suspension

The clutch is so much easier to work with, and the shifts in the OG9-3 trans are like butter. 10/10.

Yup. Swapped in a OG9-3 trans into my NG a few years back and converted to hydro. Best thing I've done to my car yet.

The trans from a 2001 parts car did NOT have the casting for the manual clutch arm internally.
