1966 Mustang T-5 Conversion 200 CI

Hey guys, and other v6 Mustangs that are trying to swap there Auto to Stick.

Well I thought this question could help a lot of people that are interested in the feature.

I was doing my research on this swap, and I found this thread from back in the day:
T-5 Conversion on a 200 cid i6 - Ford Mustang Forums

Also I found this even though its for a v8:
http://www.fordmuscle.com/archives/2000/09/t5swap/

But I'm a little confused is if I got the T-5 out of a 4 cyl 86 mustang or so, is if I can do the swap from auto to stick?

If so whats a list I could make for parts that I would need in order to do this swap?

And lastly, has the bronco stick shift conversion been done by anyone here? If so can you give me some information and tips about it? Can it be done with a 200 ci?

Thanks AFM
-Tommy

Wait, so I'm able to put a world class t-5 in my v6 200ci? Cause I always thought that specific transmission was for v8's since I've seen only v8 5.0's with them.

There are lots of WC T5 that pop up on Craigslist here in the Bay Area. Be sure to look at my information on how to ID them before you go to buy one.
I paid 325 for mine from a 89 5.0 Mustang. Replaced the rear bushing and changed the bearing retainer to a steel one myself.

I will keep an eye out and PM you if I see a deal.
