i`m thinking of doing this swap, and have checked out the modern driveline setups, which look great and easy, but not cheap. i was wondering if anyone has any idea what i might cost to pick up a good used T5 in the states and get it shipped over here to the UK.
i was thinking maybe pick up the trans used and get the rest from modern driveline.

then there is the worry if it fails/goes wrong early on about the cost of getting parts and a rebuild..

or would you guys recommend just saving for the new modern driveline kit?

Does your car have a standard trans in it now?...I just did this swap this summer in my brother's 67 and it is surprisingly easy...We used the T-5 and its bellhousing as well..It was very easily converted to use the stock ford clutch linkage so there was no need to buy an expensive spacer to use between the bellhousing and trans..About the only specialty piece we bought was the crossmember....

yeah, standard C4 in at the mo..

suitable T5`s are virtually impossible to find in the uk so i was considering asking about on here..

i dont have a workshop/garage, also cant fabricate anything really. but i figured once the better weather arrives i can do it out front.. just want to make sure i get everything i need correct cos theres no easy way to pick up parts if i get the wrong stuff.
