    Your car already has what ford calls their "heavy duty" t5. The stock t5 in a 94-95 is a world class. You either replace it with another stocker, fork over the dough for a full tremec setup, or buy a BUILT T5 (G-force or Astroperformance's T5). As for the install, You're going to pay an arm and a leg for something that is VERY easy to do yourself. If you have 2 jackstands and can bench press at least 150lbs (I know 14 year olds that can do that), you can do it your self. Its far from rocket science....

    If you were going to do the clutch and fly wheel to its still not very hard. I thought the same thing when i had to do my clutch and flywheel and all that i had never done it before but one you get it out its really not very hard its definatley not worth the price a shop will charge. I did have a couple friends help but these cars arent to hard to do any of that stuff on. You can get it done in a day.
