count me in. are you using the earlier ford short input shaft version of the t-5 or the later, around 94 up, version? i found a nice 94 v6 mustang t-5 cheap nearby but am concerned the input shaft may be too long, about a 3/4" difference. 7.18" and 7.85". very interesting work

more info.. it will be a 2 peice kit( making it easy to put togeather, and save you and i some money) this will includ.. drive shaft lenght..how to mount the tranny using the alfa mount..nice thing about this.. to remove the driveshaft.. only 4 nuts/bolts, and slip that sucker out( and an alfa box cost 2400 $ it will still use the alfa prussure plate only the t/o bearing and disk will change.. small money. and the box will last a lot longer than an alfa box, no 2 gear crunch...duel cone sycro's( if you get the w/c box) it a wonderfull and elegant solution.

i have the front plate made.. now i just need the driveshaft adapter made..so it will work out this way.. front plate, driveshaft adapter. + instructions.. but for some of you this part might be a game changer.. not bad. but the alfa bellhousing must be machined...but then agian, there a few bellhousing out there for sale..and the tranny mount, must be worked on a bit... so you will need to take the bellhousing to your fav. machine shop, and the driveshaft must be shortend.. ( ford drive shaft ) otherwise a bolt on job.... and the nice thing about this fix..if at a later date you must do a clutch job.. you just drop the driveshaft, remove the tranny from the bellhousing ( 4 bolts ) then remove the bellhousing from the motor, to get to the clutch.. any questions???

is the machining for input shaft clearance? i slid a spider bellhousing over the input shaft of the t5 i picked up. it was a very close fit and really needed a little more clearance to rotate freely

the imput bearing in the crank needs to be 17.2 mm. i am keeping it simple.. no maching on the t5.. just a wee bit on the alfa bellhousing, and the input shaft bush.

OK... now how many folks want this kit? please e mail me.. thanks..cost will be as low as i can make it.. but i need to know how many to make..so i can get a cost from my machinest..t5 boxs cost less than alfa boxes.. and you can use an 1 peice aluiumn driveshaft.. saving about 15 pounds, and this is rotational weight. no 2 gear grind.. very cheap to rebuild..if you ever need too..all 5 gears syncro'ed..
