T5 swap questions

I did a couple of searches, but I still need a little more info.

1) Will a 93 (or any year) Mark VIII one-piece driveshaft fit with no mods? I thought that I heard it would, but I couldn't find the thread again.

2) Has anyone used the MN12 Performance shifter extension kit, and how well does it work? $400 is a lot of money....

That's all I can think of right now.... Thanks for any help!

I don't believe that the mark viii ds will fit without any modifications, but i do believe that the aerostar driveshaft does fit the t-5 and as for the shifter extension, well it is quite pricey but if you want it done right go for it, i wouldn't try making my own. Why not use the Mazda M5R2 instead (from the SCs and 89-90 XR-7s), it is easier to do in my opinion...

One more question... I've got a flywheel that came with the tranny. I'm wondering if it will work with my car. I'm assuming that it will. The donor car was an '82 Mustang, but I don't think that it was the original transmission. It should still be a 50 oz flywheel, right? The Ford PN on it is E1ZR-6380-AA

I don't believe that flywheel will work, if i am not mistaken they changed in 86. you say that you got the t-5 from a 82? There wasn't a t-5 till about 85-86 in 82 stangs had a 4-speed. You sure you have a T-5?

It is a T5. Like I said... I don't think the tranny was original. This car was very much not stock... I'm pretty sure it was worked on in the late 80s, early 90s. The engine was pretty built, but the block cracked between two cylinders. Unfortunately the car has been parked under a tree for the last 10-12 years. With T-tops....

According to this thread the Mark VIII driveshaft will work if you swap the slip yoke... so I'm going to pick one up today...
