I ordered my new T-5 from D&D at noon on Monday. I talked with Don Walsh, who was very helpful and professional. On Tuesday (the next day), I got home from work to find my new T-5 waiting at my door step. Man, am I impressed with D&D!!

I got the Ford Racing Z trans with the 2.95 1st gear and 330 lb-ft rating. I paid $1049 for it and $40 shipping, no sales tax.
I'm planning on using a late model bellhousing (anybody got one?), and 10.5" clutch with hydraulic actuation. I'll post items of interest as I go along.

Hi m8,
Skip the hydraulic clutch and go with a cable. That way, you can add a brake booster. Ron Morris, Mustangs Plus, makes a great one for less money than a hydraulic set up.

That cable setup, if I'm thinking of the right one, is an ugly mess. I can put together a hydraulic one for under $50, and have the benefit of lighter pedal effort. I'm planning on swapping in a 351w, which is going to require a very heavy 10.5" clutch, so for me, hydraulic is the way to go. If I did go with a cable, I wouldn't pay a bunch of money for somebody else to do what I could do myself for a lot less.

Ok, sounds reasonable. Forget about any future brake boosters though.
