i have a 5 sp tranny in the garage that i was going to put in my daughter's white one when she got comfortable with a stick. i dont know if thats gonna happen now. might be for sale, needs one of the clutch forks replaced, i think.
I've always wanted a 5spd. It just so happens that while I was shopping for a Stang the best one I found was this one which is automatic. Every single 5spd I looked at and test drove was ragged out mechanically and physically. I've gotten used to the automatic but I still prefer a 5spd. Even with a shift kit and all it's still not a 5spd. A reputable Mustang shop in my area suggests that I buy a tuner instead of gears, shift kit, chip etc. The performance of those things can be changed with a few key strokes and changed back to stock if desired with a few more key strokes. I think that's what I'm going to do.
I'm in the process of swapping a 5 speed into my 96 right now.
I've got a pedal assembly on the way and some trim pieces already here.
Waiting to sell one of my other cars before I purchase the T45.

You do not need a different computer.
A good SCT Tuner can turn off all the automatic functions and make your computer work
with a 5 speed.
Does AMP have a website? Would be curious to see what they are selling their kits for.
I'll start a thread with my 5 speed swap adventures when I gather more parts.
AODE=Shit. I hate the gt because of the tranny, the thing loves to shift like a fat kid loves cake, I am either going to swap to a T5 or sell the car because the whole shifting into second while doing 70mph isn't doing it for me.
