    Here's a neat thread on using the very late model Mustang (05-07) V6 T5. These are short and have a yoke on the back. The shifter requires some work and this is how our veteran enjenjo did the trick:

    And since you can't search for character strings less than 3 letters using the internal search engine, try using Google. Just type in:

    "T-5" site:jalopyjournal.com or "T5" site:jalopyjournal.com

    It'll keep you busy!

    For those interested in something different - here's an excellent thread about using a Toyota Supra 5-spd:
