New Pony have a few questions

hey im new to the site so give me some slack. i bought a 1996 mustang gt with a brand new auto trans, all stock but a cold air and new rims. i HATE auto transmissions and want a manual swap is there a kit that i can buy somewhere? and this is not going to be a daily driver anymore i plan on having a 10 second car when im done so can u possibly buy a built manual to bolt right on?

Manual swaps are a pretty common question that's asked around d here. Most people will say to just buy a manual GT because the cost involved is kind of pricey. I know there's a couple threads about it right now.

Usually yes. auto is the way to go while racing but there are several manuals that can handle up to 750hp.. Which he will need to be around that power at the flywheel with that car to run 10's.. You better look into a fully built forged rotating assembly along with the safety goodies, fuel pumps regulators gauges etc etc.. This will be a $15k build if you don't have a starting point.. Best thing to do I know from experience is to buy a roller and build a lil at a time.. You will need a full chasis bracing and roll cage to go that fast without pretzeling your chasis over time from hard pulls
