Default T5 adapter

Anyone know where I can get the T5 adapter/spacer plate for under $135? While my grandfather is gone to DC and over seas I am going to rebuild his T5 and put it in the coupe. Comes with a hurst billet shifter setup too. I'm going to make the tranny crossmember, but he recommended me buy the plate.

EDIT: Also would anyone happen to know which plate I need? My bellhousing casting is C7ZA-6394-A


Do I buy this one?

That would be the one. I don't think you'll find it much cheaper.

As an option, you can use the T-5 bell and buy a fulcrum spacer for about $40. This would allow you to run your original z-bar setup.

You can use the original z-bar setup with just the adapter too. My grandfather has done it to his and all he bought was the adapter and crossmember.

Both of our mustangs are I6s.

Does anyone have a link to a guide about assembling a T5?

Ok I have a question about the trans mount. How much lower does the T5 trans mount sit than a stock mount? Going to modify my old one and need to know how much I need to lower it.

i just measured my aftermarket T5 cross member for you. from frame bolt cL to trans mounting surface is 2.25" on one side and 2.38" on the other. appx. should be within a hundredth one way or another.

I have both the adapter plate and the fulcrum I believe. I'll be down at my shop tomorrow and I'll dig them out. I do not think I have the bolts for the adapter though but the fulcrum should be complete. WOuld you be interested? PM me.
