I'm not sure I would trust your specialist.  Thousands of people have done the T5 swap without issue.  If you take a measurement from the trans mount to the center of the output shaft, I doubt it's much different.

Are you sure your driveshaft is the correct length?  If the yoke is too far in, or not far enough, that will cause problems.

Hello,  Specialist is "the guy" for axles. Huge name over here

He did say my driveshaft may be a touch short

They pulled the shafts and diff and went over it all and it was "as new"

I will admit I questioned their findings as have had 6 or 8 T5 cars without this issue and mine is an unmolested car so should work as well as any other
