why not just add a short throw shifter?

anyway ur current trans Toyo Koygo if ur a 2wd or a Toyo Koygo or a Mistu 5 speed.

IIRC the 4 pot mustangs used a T-5. so to swap them u'd need to address the lenght of the trans via crossmemeber mounting, driveshaft lenght and weather ur has a mechanical or hydro clutch V. the t-5. plus the input shaft lenght may come into plau

physically it should bolt up. ur current trans has a 3.96 first gear ratio and a .85 OD ratio V the T-5s 3.97 first and .85 OD so theres no real difference there.
