Has anyone tried this yet on their MN12?

I know that the Lincoln has a similar chassis to the Thunderbird so I was wondering if this package is compatible with the T-bird.
EDIT: This is a 6 speed swap, not a 5 speed. Heres the link to it

Let's just hope he doesn't slam it into 3rd, slip off the knob and punch the navigation system

Oops forgot the link. This is a 6 speed.
I know many have done 5 speed swap but there are few that have completed a 6 speed on their cars.
Many say it requires a lot of fabrication.

I know of two, one a 93 with a 5.0 and T56 and lil mikey's termi swapped 95 SC with the TR6060. I think a few SC guys might have them by now as well.

The trans crossmember basically needs to be custom made

Would this transmission kit put the shifter in the correct location with the correct drive shaft on a sc? As well what else would be needed to make it work for the sc aside from the bell housing?

This car belongs to someone named Larry Carroll, and its a 6 speed.

Would the trans crossmember from a Mark VIII work on MN12s?

The stock crossmembers are virtually identical. The problem is the T56 and TR6060 rear mounts don't wind up in the same spot as they do with the 4R70w or T45, therefore require some fabrication to make a rear mount work

They are similar, but not that close. The Mark has a rectangular mount and uses 2 bolts to secure the trans mount. The Tbird has one in the middle and a bump in the metal - I had to grind down the bump and drill 2 new holes to use a Tbird X-member with my DOHC swapped Tbird using the Mark trans mount to make it sit flat.

Forum member Mad1stGen has converted many a Gen2 and a couple Gen1s from automatic to manual. He's working an a 98 LSC right now, and even with long tube headers. His work is documented on the LOD forum in this thread.

One of his most epic builds is "Pullied 3 - Another total makeover". This is a gorgeous black 96 LSC that goes stock to wild with a manual and supercharger on a crate engine. Hopefully you can see the threads. He's the go-to guy when it comes to Mark VIIIs.

I'm sure this can also be done to an MN-12.

Great threads! The crossmember doesn't look as modded as I thought it needed to be, I remember lil mikey's TR6060 had lots of fabrication for the mount he used.

Cool! I knew of several manual trans Gen1s, including that 96LSC, but I didn't know he had done any Gen2s as well. Cool!
