Clutch Conversion

So im thinking about doing away with the stupid hydraulic system that ford uses for their clutch's. Anyone know if its possible to convert over to a cable driven clutch on our trans? If so what kinda cost am i looking at? I'll be doing the conversion myself not gonna be done by a shop.

Yes the mazda transmission. With the crappy slave. I haven't had to replace the slave yet but with the centerforce that i put in im pretty sure im gonna have the same problems as everyone else in due time. I mean i have the paperwork for my slave so i can get a new one but im sure it will get old very fast since its my dd. But yeah im doing some research right now. There are a few floating around ebay right now but they want to much for them and if im gonna pay over a grand ill just get a new one from a company and not some used one i don't know how it was treated. But yah ill look into it and let you guys know what i find out im gonna hit up advanced adapters to and see what they can do for me.
