I do have quite the ammount of tools, I am a 3rd year mechanic apprentice, and have a family history of hot rodding and automotive background, so knoledge is abundant. I also have experience switching mustangs from Auto to stick. However, I have always done it on cars that I KNEW came with a standard tranny option.
My biggest issue is will it bolt up. Money isnt abunmdant, however, I do have a nicely sized budget, I just dont really feel like shelling out for a tranny that I cant use :S
Thanks for the input though, happy hot rodding
