    I dont think a fox trans will work :-\ its not that big of a deal you just have to round up all the parts for it. Like the trans / bell house / clutch / pedals / drive shaft ( not sure about that one ) / clutch cable........and so on and on

    Fox body trannys were 5/8ths of an inch shorter on the input shaft SO you'll need to run a fox body bellhousing and clutch fork to run the FOX T5 to make sure the input shaft seats properly into the pilot bearing....because of this, also you'll need a 5/8th" spacer for the driveshaft. Keep in mind this will move the shifter 5/8" further forward in the car. Keep in mind now as well that if you go into the market for long tube headers in the future with a fox bellhousing and clutch fork, you can run into problems with clearance around the clutch fork itself.

    Other wise, you need a 5speed pedal assembly, clutch cable, flywheel, and clutch assy as well.

    i was looking into this also. I went to a local salvage yard, they looked it up on the computer and said I would need all the above mentioned parts, 94-95 transmission, wiring harness, and computer. I was ready to sell my truck and plunk down the cash to do this because I would love to have a manual until I found out how much changing I would have to do. It's also very expensive. It's essentially not worth it in my eyes. that's my .02
