Exclamation Pleasee help me, transmission change

Hi so I have a 98 V6 Mustang automatic and I am looking to change it to a manual but I don't know what parts I need to get in order to get this done? Can someone help me out and tell me exactly what I need? Thank you!

This should get you started: http://www.mustangevolution.com/forum/t16117/

Also, Kiljosh on here is in the middle or about to start the same thing, so you can wait for him to chime in.

Re: Pleasee help me, transmission change

just ask yourself a few questions

1. Am I so attached to my car that I dont want to sell it regardless ever

2. Do I care that the value of my car will drop like a rock and it will be harder to sell once I swap the transmission to a manual?

3. Do I care that in doing this chances are I could have sold and purchased a manual car like mine and saved some cash and resale value?

4. Can I do all the work myself or will labor charges rape me?

If you dont mind the above then you can go for it.

Re: Pleasee help me, transmission change

I actually based most of my parts research off of this site...Ineed a t5 swap kit help!!!! - Mustang Forums at StangNet

Here is a copy of my notepad file with the parts included on that site but ordered by price. I'm pretty sure I slimmed their list down aswell because I need a running version of my car as quickly as possible since I am moving soon. Parts like a shifter, flywheel, or shifter boot I havent looked into much yet.
