Then we need pictures....
I have a good alfa box with light gears etc. But I would have jumped at a t5 with a ton of options and cheaper. If it was a option at the time. If I put in a v6 I think I would go with the t5. You can even make a t5 a dog box cheap..

test complete on uhml plastic.. drilled 2 holes. 1- 8 mm and 1 -10 mm.. put grade 12.9 bolt nut and washer.. assb. bolted down both to 35 ft/lbs.. and i drilled them 10 mm form the edge to try to induce cracking of the plastic.. no cracking, and after i removed the nuts/bolts/washers, there was no indintation of the plastic.. so this will make a great adapter plate between the alfa rear axle, and the ford driveshaft. but the rear axle bolt holes must be drilled out to 10 mm. i will supply the correct nuts and bolts for this, in the kit.. the bolts will hold the adapter and alfa flange on the shoulder of the bolts. only the threads will be exposed, perfect fit.

Hi bianchi1,

I'm certainly interested in the T5 conversion, but I'd really need a clear and concise description of your solution, and "pictures before purchase" would be an absolute must. I think you'd have better luck generating interest in your kit if we could all see and understand exactly what you've developed.

Regards,


Nick

speedometer

one thing i've been looking at is the speedo drive. i have a 94 v6 mustang trans and i think it uses an electronic sender for the speedometer. i haven't really looked too close [ haven't taken it apart]. will i be able to attach the speedometer cable?

I like the project. I would like to see more discussion on the problems if any one faces in making the conversion. I am definitely interested in this practical conversion
