try ferntree gully, sponsors of here, also you do not need an entire pedal box, as the clutch pedal mounts seperately under the dash in BA/BF models.
you will need
Manual PCM (or access to ford IDS/PDS/WDS to reprogram PCM - im 99% sure this is possible)
Gearbox/Bellhousing
Slave cylinder
master cylinder
hydraulic lines
clutch kit
flywheel
clutch pedal
modified brake pedal or manual pedal box

i **think** thats it

A new 5 speed is around $900 from ebay, a 6 speed is about $4000 second hand and $6000 new :| The 5 speed is a dog of a box but it really depends how much you wanna spend.

and kraddy, if your 5 speed is still in good nick and not thrashed out, i might be interested in it. why is the 5 speed such a bad box?
is it weak?
