The job is really not that hard to do. We do them all the time in our shop. The best way is to buy a donor car and switck everything. Its a lot easier than you think. If you have a donor car you can compair and switch. 5 speed mustangs are pritty cheap with the 4 cyl. I bought one lastweek for $400.00 bucks. Body was shot and motor and trans perfect.

Hay no sweat dude that job is a piece of cake. I bet after you do it you will take your brothers for a ride. Its a great feeling to get rid of that slush box auto and drive a 5 speeder. Just dont forget to install the pilot bearing. Good luck tom :bigthumbsup ;) :happydance: :gringreen :D :hihi: :)

That's pretty good! The switch to the manual tranny should increase mileage if it is implemented properly. This is just an assumption seeing as a manual transmission has about a 25% HP gain over an automatic. This should translate into gas mileage but 30+MPG is a very good number. What do you get in the city? I am pretty sure that a manual mainly helps for stop-n-go city driving because of how it is geared compared to the auto (the auto may have a lower overdrive gear?)

This thread has been cleaned up due to language and flaming.

It should've never gotten as bad as it did, and for that I apologize. The Mustang II and the 2.3 Forums are fairly self-policing, so I usually don't have to do much other than skim them over now-and-then, while helping out in the other forums from a moderating standpoint. I don't know how this one escaped my attention; but it has been fixed.

This is a blanket warning to everyone involved, keep it clean, USE the search feature, as was suggested (seriously, how many more auto-to-manual swap threads do we freaking need?), and have fun. If you can't do these, simply leave, go find somewhere else to pick fights and express immaturity.
