a t5 will work but wont last with 250+rwkw, especially if your going to use all 250 of those kw in a sporty fashion.lol..

to be honest if you want a manual and you only want to do it once, go a t56 6 speed..
you can try strengthened t5 gear sets ect, but I think you will still break them..

nope the ba 5 speed is pretty much still a t5 and no stronger..

you could go with a tremec tko but will still cost you around 3g and still isn't as strong as a t56.. I guess you could say the tko is a in between t5 and t56.

Are you talking about a TR3650 5sp ????
They are really long, and you may need to alter the tranny tunnel, and/or shifter point.
Also, see where the starter motor mounts ????....what would you do for that ???

You may have to look to the US for a 5sp box.....something for a Mustang.

Actually the TR3650 is very strong...it's pretty much like a T56 without the extra gear. I'd go straight for a TR6060 conversion. These are the toughest and shift the best. Get hold of D&D transmissions in the states.
