I'll try and answer everyone questions. To keep from boring everyone with little details I'll hit the highpoints. If someone wants all the details on a item just ask.
I'm running a Quad 4 bellhousing with a Zetec aluminum flywheel and stock pressure plate. The clutch disk is from a thunderbird 2.3 turbo as it matches up to the T5. As most of you already know the S-10 T5 is an option to install in the GT since the shifter comes out in the stock location and the swap is pretty easily done. Since I had already been running one behind the Opel engine it was a logical choice for the Zetec. Since the Quad 4 bellhousing only accepts Ford mounting and I was wanting to upgrade to a world class transmission anyway I chose the 97 mustang T5. It's the last T5 version for the mustangs, but the main reason I picked it over other T5's is because it has the long input shaft. This requires a 1" spacer between the engine and bellhousing. I wanted this because it will cause the engine to be located an inch further forward and give the extra clearance needed for the thermostat housing to clear the firewall. The downside is that the crank pilot needs to be drilled out to accept the larger pilot bearing. The Quad 4 bellhousing has no provisions for a throw out bearing. So I shortened the T-5 front bearing retainer and machined a spacer to mount the factory Zetec hydraulic throw out bearing. The only thing I don't like about having a hydraulic clutch is that it's so soft (you can push it down with one finger) it has virtually no feel, but it works great. I swapped over the S-10 tailhousing to the Ford T-5 which required a small modification to the reverse syncro and the speedometer reluctor had to be relocated to match up with the S-10 tailhousing. If you wanted to run the stock mechanical speedometer the same modification would work for the speedo gear. That takes care of all the mods from the engine back. I'll get into the engine swap tomorrow.
ha ill just pay you to do it hb that XD
