T5 with a 2.3

I cannot begin to explain how much time I've tried putting into this research and how fed up I am. Simplifying a very long story, I currently have an 81 Capri (same as the mustang) I got from a friend who for what ever reason felt the need to destroy 2-3 srod transmissions with hole shots. After searching for rebuilds for the one I have, research saying they are junk, and removing the current one I have and seeing all the damage done to mine I looked for alternatives. I ended up buying a t5

My problem, I was anxious and bought the best deal I could find.

I have a wc t5 and not the nwc t5 I need... The differences that kill me at the moment are the input shaft and bell housing from the srod... Are there any aftermarket input shafts. Also, what bell housing will I need.

I can list 1000 reasons why I'm not just throwing a v8 in it that would work with the t5, so please, no idiot posts with that sort of suggestion. Most of it comes down to money.

Thanks in advance for any help given

You will need to get a 2.3 bellhousing with the tob arm clutch cable and matching quadrant for the clutch pedal and any crossmember 86-93 v8 or 2.3 from a 87-93 car now for what input shaft bearing to use I gotta do some researching. The only advice I can give you at the moment is to try and match it with one at your local auto parts store.

Also need to check to see if the clutch spline is the same on the 2.3 and v8
