Hmmm, all this time I thought it was a useful technique for tranny's without synchros.

1) Don't let me hinder you but it's prob not worth the time or cost.
2) double clutching - *laugh*
3) Trans brake & Converter are completely different goggle is your friend!

For the most part your right, it is used when downshifting and matching rpms. With todays transmissions its not really needed, as that is what the synchronizers are for. In a transmission without synchros double clutching is required to downshift.

I'm looking to do this as well... It's a ton of work for sure! Your going to need:
T5 with clutch and flywheel (Best time to upgrade)
All wiring for the T5
Shifter and accessories
K member (this is the part I don't understand so hopefully someone chimes in)

And once they have been hooked up the car will enter some sort of limp mode since the codes don't match up on PATS and you have to go to ford and have them reflash your ecu... From my research it's about $150.... I'm seriously looking to do this... So please people chime in and help me out.... I've looked into doing a GT swap as well but the parts list for that is just insane so... 5speed is ok with me.

Question: Will I need a new driveshaft for the T5?

You also need the bellhousing! (That's kinda important

Here's an auto to TR3650 swap thread. It might give you an idea of what is involved. And remember, no double-clutching necessary.
