need t-5 tranny help

I just got a t-5 for the v8 swap in the 94. I have a couple of questions.1st what do I need to make it work with the ranger hydraulics, I know I need the slave cylinder but what kind.2. will the driveshaft work or will I need a custom one made, or can it just be shortened.3 what kind of clutch/flywheel should I use. 4. What kind of fluid are yall running.

The truck is a 93 originally with the 2.3 5-speed reg cab.

Second that, go with the cable! much better. Just use a stock clutch and flywheel! Your driveshaft may be the right length, but will not have the right yoke for a t5.
