its being done, and for under 300 bux! i got myself a MTX-IV from a sho. it bolts up. but the flywheel will not, so inorder to get all in all, u hafta get a 9.25in clutch/flywheel assembly. there are 2 different manuals i have found so far, hydrolic clutch and a cable clutch. DO NOT USE THE HYDROLIC!! there is no room for a clutch mastercylinder. the pedal assembly will bolt up to a stock taurus, ull need the brake and clutch pedal brakets. all the electrical connectors are there and ready to plug in. its a bia to get those out. i know i am forgetting a lot of details, im recovering from the flu. so if yall have any Q's ask away.

For the trans mount, if you can find an MTX SHO subframe, it will make your life a lot easier. The mount will bolt up, and if you ever need to change it, you can just get a stock mount and bolt it in.

To make things alot easier, find a flywheel for either a ranger or a rare first gen Probe V6..... it should work like that. Nice work, can't wait for more pics

Will that Escort shifter fit? And that SHO front fascia bolted right up? That looks like the stock G2 fenders and headlights in that pic.

I THINK the MT-5 clutch will fit, I know it will fit the tranny, I have the same tranny in my car, I believe I still have one of the clutches out there in the car, if I do I'll bring it in tomorrow and try to take a pic, if anyone knows if it will fit drop a message on here. If it will, just pay shipping and you are welcome to it. Clutch and pressure plate both you can have. It's used, but it's not fried. It's definately not new, but it's far from toasted. Anyway, the price of shipping and it's yours if it will fit and I still got it which I think I do.
