Transmission trouble

Evening. I am looking for a slave cylinder for my T5 transmission that I am going to put with my V8 in the ranger. can anyone point me to a place to buy one. or better yet what model so i can look for it. I really don't want to install the cable and deal with that headache. thanks, all help is appreciated.

I'm told on the newer mustangs with a 4.0 you can use the bellhousing and hydraulic clutch set up with a 302 and T5. Would probably be the cheapest way to go. I know the aftermarket slaves are pricey. Definitely work towards this though, the cable is a royal pain.

and how about transmission mounts for the T5. Will my old trans bracket work? I have the stock 3.0 Liter truck and manual trans.

I'm not sure about the trans cross member. My truck is a little different. I welded on a small plate to extent the cross member forward for the trans.

I don't have a t5 I have a tremec tko500 and yes it was easy to install, its a bolt-on pretty much. And I did something similar like My91Ranger, instead of welding a plate I just bolt it down using a polyurethane trans mount
