You got all the big stuff. THese projects sure like to nickel and dime you in th eend thats for sure. I did use my stock driveshaft from my notch with a th350. Was about 1/2" short from sitting in the output shaft correctly so i bought the steeda driveshaft spacer to compensate for that.

Were and what shifter will you be running?

Yep, its the little stuff that can hurt the old wallet as well.......

I have the factory shifter and cable assy from the 98 donor car, I was gonna attempt to make that work 1st. Hopefully in the stick Mustang tunnel opening. If not, I will have to go with an aftermarket set up.

Thanks for the info on the d/s info.

Im running a short tail shaft turbo 350 and My driveshaft (Ford racing) was 3" to short. Im getting a custom driveshaft made tomorrow.
My stock v8 cross member fit almost perfect. I had to open up the slots on the bottom. I also used a T5 tranny mount

Nice, you lucked out with the cross member..... I didnt want to learn the hard way with the 4l60e so I just ordered up the AJE cm from SK Speed. I am hoping the stock ds will fit with the adapter yoke for my application......:chug:

You can pick up f body gauge clusters cheap. From the info I've read here it makes the gauge issue pretty simple. I believe PSI even offers a pigtail to adapt their harness to the f body cluster. I'll find out soon, I have a camaro cluster going in my 95 GT.

That would be great if PSI offers that, I kept the stock cluster from the 98 donor car woot woot:cheers: Please keep me posted on your findings with your car.

PSI does make a harness. I have one for my fox body swap.
