T-5 swap or new AOD

Unless the TV cable is broken, its too damn cold to crawl under and check right now, I need a tranny. So I thought maybe swapping in a T-5 would be worth it I have wanted to do it since I bought the couger. So I thought I'd break down a parts list and you guys can help me fill in the blanks and maybe talk me through it, if you have nothing better to do of course.
1. T-5 $500-750 maybe buy a used/bad one and do something like this http://www.jegs.com/webapp/wcs/store...74789_-1_11251
2. Clutch $150-300
3. Flywheel $350-400 for aluminum $50-100 factory new
4. Driveshaft $350?
5. Clutch cable and quadrant $100
6. Bellhousing/clutch fork $50-100
7. Pedal assy ?????
8. Shifter http://www.jegs.com/webapp/wcs/store...0002_944366_-1
9. Misc wiring and fluid $100
In the neighborhood of $1300 to $1700 which is awfully close to a new automatic, unless I forgot something

If this is going into a FOX body then you have it easy. Just go to a junkyard and look for a FOX body Mustang with a 5 speed.

Then just start swapping.

I've come into this world with nothing and still manage to have some of it left.
