for those interested, the answer in yes.
Found a 2012 5 speed box at local scrappy, done 10k miles. took my old casing down to compare and looked extremely similar. took the gamble and bought it.
just finished a road test and all is well. 1 bellhousing bolt which goes to the sump doesnt line up but all others do, and drivers driveshaft mount to engine mount needs a little modification to fit. otherwise is a direct replacement.
This now leads to the possibility of using a t5.1 6 speed box for a 6 speed conversion, going to keep my eyes out for 1.

nice to see someone take the plunge! are the ratios any different in the t5.1 box then or are they just the same? 6 speed would be greatA:
