Auto to T-5 Swap Article
#1
Not sure where to post this but I thought it was a good article for anyone going to swap from a auto to a manual. I am going to use this when I do it. Going from a FMX to a T-5 soon. And reading over this gives a good idea of whats required. Sorry if this is the wrong section

Told you came to the right place. I'm starting to think if it's possible we've done it or are getting ready to try it.

mmmmm, i believe i got a hold of the site and really got active when it was already done. so i guess i never posted it.

if you have any questions, email me. if you get the whole kit from modern driveline its a easy swap.

he'll even give you just piece by piece. most importantly the clutch pedal. and if you don't have the hangar pieces already in your bracket like some don't, then you can remove it and send it to mustang steve and have him install roller bearing ones. and of course cut down on your brake pedal.

other than that, if you are going cleveland, you can get a 5.0 bellhousing and use the entire 5.0 parts.

I agree..
I new Bruce from Modern Driveline when he was in California. I even used his conversion kit to swap the C-4 in my '68 to a TKO-600. The offer individual pieces as well as whole kits. Just look up Modern Driveline and it's all there. Conversion kits, pedals, shifters, clutches, bell housings and transmissions. all you have to do is call him.

Not to hijack, but here's an article with a 71 'vert as the subject car. Just thought it was cool.
