Regarding the moving of the gear shift forward on a t-5. I
had to do this on my car. I used a chevy s-10 tailhousing on
the mustang t-5. I had to rig up a speedo gearing that would
work, and used the hurst s-10 shifter with with a shorted
gear shift handle.


What did you use for a bellhousing? I've got a couple of mustang T5 carcasses with broken 3rd gears that could be a starting point.
