I started out with an 88 Mustang 4 cyl T5 and used the following parts:

--stock bellhousing, clutch linkage, pressure plate.

--67 6 cyl Mustang throwout bearing.

--88 4 cyl Mustang clutch (it fit the I6 flywheel).

--V8 yoke and front U-joint (required welding on bigger V8 front yoke to driveshaft). Had the driveshaft shortened a bit and balanced when the front yoke was installed.

--Special roller bearing pilot bushing.

--Adapter plate I got from amartin on the forum. This source has since dried up, but you can probably get one from one of the companies that sell the swap kits.

--Stock rear x-over that I modified to fit the T-5.

--88 Mustang rear mount.

--Stock T-5 shifter.

Probably left something out, but that's the gist of it. Be sure to have the flywheel turned before you install all of the above. Not a bad swap at all once all the parts are rounded up.

Hope this is helpful. Good Luck!

inlinepages.com is my site. Be sure to look at the History page as well.

Watch out for the I6 'kit'. The adapter is wrong, it does not work properly.
