i don't even think you need that if you're starting with another 3.8, you would need to rebalance if you were starting with a 302 though

How would one accomplish a 5spd swap with a 4.6L 94 bird? Could it be done using stock parts? It would seem to me that you could use most of the stock parts off a supercoupe like the crossmember, petals, hydro clutch plumbing, console ect. But what trans would be used will a 3.8 SC 5spd bolt up? Maybe a 5spd, clutch and flywheel out of a 4.6L mustang with the SC petals and soforth? I've been noticing AODE's seem to fail if they are placed under any real stress and have been thinking about attempting a 5spd swap. I think maybe a 4.6L DOHC out of a Mark VIII and a mustang GT 5spd setup would be a pretty sweet combo.
