Well depends on your needs, wants and desires (power).
The swap requires plenty of parts so do some reading first to see how complex and in depth the swap is. On the cheap you are probably looking at $1,500 or so. Also be sure of whatever you buy is the correct part starting with the T5 as many have purchased a wrong T5 as there are many variations for many vehicles.

And I was shooting low because if you were really going to do that you would at least want to go thru the T5 and upgrade a few parts inside. You would also want a quality clutch that will serve you well.

What mods do you have?

What power levels are you shooting for?

What gears do you have in the back?

Look at the Lentch for a valve body. Better control

Speak with Lentech and they will point you in the right direction. Also no need to go crazy and get race type gear stuff since you are on the stock converter and relatively stock HP no need to go crazy. Also start saving and planning for a rear end gear swap as that will make a HUGE difference

I Agree 100%.....
A 3.55 is good if you put alot of miles on the car & you still get some use out of 1st gear too.A 3.73 is the best gear to run if you dont mind a 1-2mpg loss.It offers the best of both worlds,if using the car for dual purpose like daily driving & drag racing.1st gear is pretty much useless,since it tachs out so quickly. A t5 out of a 4 cylinder can be used,but its not as strong as a 5.0 t5.The pilot bearing,in the back of your crankshaft, will have to be replaced if you run a 4 cylinder t5 on a 5.0.
If you run a performance or heavy duty clutch,I recommend a aluminum quadrant, firewall adjuster & non adjustable oem Ford clutch cable.Dont buy an Autozone cable.Use an oem Ford throwout bearing,even if you use a different brand clutch.
Another thing to mention is the O2 sensor harness.If youre gonna keep the aod(A9P)ecm & o2 harness in place,you have nothing to worry about.However if you decide to swap the ecm to a 5 speed(A9L) make sure you swap the aod o2 harness out for a 5 speed o2 harness.If you dont swap it,the signal return trace will get fried once you push the clutch pedal down & turn the key to start.
