T5 Transmission with the electronic speedo pickup, clutch, flywheel, clutch pedal assembly, cable, adjuster, smaller output shaft yoke for the driveshaft, computer, and a ton of time to do it. The hardest part is taking out the pedal assembly under your dash. You need to remove the brake booster assembly either on your back, or take out the dash. Either way is a PITA......

There is only one type of T5 for a 1999-2004 V6 application with the electronic speedometer pickup.

The tag will read 1352-260

Here are a couple of pictures of one I have sitting around.

Talking Don't you all jump on me now with a stick!

Is it really that much of a pain? I mean, I would understand the whole work you would have to do. Even get the engine out of the cavity for proper fitting and all the things, but it should take around 3 to 5 months if you work at it every weekend.
I wanna do it on mine, what's the deal behind the 99-04 5-speed computer? Wouldn't the computer for the automatic also work? Is there any place I could get the whole swap set with everything I need + a little rookie checklist? lol.
I have the manual book to do the swap and the enthusiasm to tackle it down. This would be like my very first project. I recently saw a White top convertible with a manual tranny and a 3.8L V6 but they snatched it from me before I could even see it a second time. :/ I just hope whoever got it would take care of it like I would. Anyways, how bad is the work to be done?

I am in the process of doing this on a 94 GT. The pedals are not that difficult. Four bolts into the firewall and one on top going into the dash. Removed everything that had to do with the auto up to the engine. Don't forget to put the pilot bearing in. I ordered a new clutch kit that had everything in it for the clutch. I also have a complete donor car which made it simpler. The wiring harness runs up to a plug on the pass. side of the firewall, unplug auto harness, plug in manual harness. The computer is just a swap from a same year auto to one that had a stick.

You will need to drill a small hole for the clip that holds the clutch cable to the firewall. The factory screw that holds it is self tapping and there is a small dimple in the metal below the hole for the cable so you can drill in exactly the right spot.

Do not be deterred, I have found it is not that difficult. I would have it finished already, but I had some other projects popped up that took precedence.

I want to do this, so bad but then my husband yells about the cost of doing it so I found a V6 5spd local that needs front end repair.(Bumper, headlights) and HOPEFULLY I can get this guy down from his 1800$ price since he wants NOTHING to do with the car now that he wrecked it.. What a jerkoff.

Thumbs up Yup, yeah, yuh... uhu, yup.

That's what I thought since the beginning IMJRK, with honesty... I didn't think it would be sooo bad. SHINERSTANG is a very trusting source, I would believe him but this time it seems like personal opinion. I mean, I know it's not like changing brake pads or replacing wiper blades... but there is no way it can be that much of a pain or not be enjoyable. It may take a lot of money! I never said no, and it could be more budget friendly to find a manual STANG and buy it. But I still would do the swap. We are talking about the first MUSTANG I ever drove. It has a sentimental value to it and also an automatic transmission for old ladies who would like to drive STANGs. Please! It is embarrassing to have an automatic transmission when you're behind the steering wheel of a pony.

Anyways, WINDCITY.. just wanted to bring to your attention. I don't have access to that link. The website does not display the page. Maybe I'm alone experiencing the problem. Can someone else confirm, please?

You could just go to supersixmotorsports.com. But for some reason, it redirects me to a page that does not exist so I have to search for the site using a search engine which is a pain to do!! After getting on the site the link is on their homepage, scroll down and it should be on the left "auto to t5 swap" (i think). Its not an installation guide, its more of a checklist with the parts you need for the swap.

Thank you, I'm definitely checking it out! That's what I was looking for... list of parts. The rest is common sense and haynes manual for RED LIGHTS on things you should avoid. I know it would be pitiful to finish everything and go.. DUH! I FORGOT THE CABLE TO THE CLUTCH, DoUH! I FORGOT THE GREASE, DoUH!... so on.
So, I just need a lot of time and save up some money. This whole swap I estimate around $3000 because I don't have a donor's STANG like lucky IMJRK. lol. It's tough to get a tranny from a j.yard because you never have any warranties. You get what you buy and off you go. Anways, I'll stay in touch. I love to get on the tightest places to work on the STANG. I enjoy it so much to build, repair and maintain my STANG with my own two hands while I have them.
Much love team! Stay united!

There are plenty of these around, but I guess salvage yards are not bountiful in the islands.

You are looking for one from a 3.8 V6 from 1999 to 2004. None of the other models will have the right tail housing, output shaft and digital speedometer sender. It will have an ID Tag of 1352-260 on a tail housing bolt.

Shipping one in from the 48 states will be pricy. Is this what you are seeking?
