Been looking around for options in order to get my old stang running again, and the goals include a replacement engine and an AOD to 5 spd swap.
on a whim I searched 351w on craigslist. Would it be possible to get a 351w and the zf 5spd to work in my car? I understand I"m going to need to the clutch and a bunch of other parts, I'd just like to know if this would be a worthwhile swap to undertake?

Can't say that I've ever seen the ZF tranny installed in a Fox, but the 351 would be a good swap...just run a search and you'll find scads of articles...

That tranny is short, stubby, and yet bulking in a 'fat' kind of way.
I don't see it fitting.
Picture the T5 as a tall lady with long legs... Maybe Nicole Kidman.
The truck 5 speed is short and fat... Maybe Kathy Bates.
