Hello, all...
I am thinking seriously about installing a Mustang T-5 (91-93 unit) into my 1987 5.0 Bird....I can handle everything except for this info:

What pedal assembly/quadrant do I use? The turbo Coupe is a hydraulic setup....which I won't be using....do I use the 1987-1993 mustang 5.0 setup instead? In addition, my car is a column shift car, without a console...is there a hole already in the floor?

Thanks for any help.....

theres no hole in the floor, one must be cut

use the mustang clutch pedals, quadrant, and cable

Go with the t-5 swap you'll love it.

before you go to cut the hole set the tc console in place than it will be very clear where the hole needs to be. I made the mistake of guessing where it needed to be and cut my hole about 2" too low.

If you have any questions along the way don't hesitate to ask..

from what i read the best cable setup is the stock fms mustang cable w/ a fire wall adjuster and aftermarket quadrant. To use the firewall adjust you will need to swap a mustang brake boaster to make it fit.

I say the stock stang piece cause it will last longer than the aftermarket cables (from what stangers say on the corral....
