Default T-5 Transmissin tail plug

I'm going to be doing my h/c/i and will be pulling my tranny with the motor. Where can I get a plug that will fit into the tail of my tranny so that when i take off the driveshaft i won't empty out my t-5 onto the driveway?

Thanks

well it should only spill a little...the ds doesn't seal it up

but try http://www.ddperformance.com or ebay

if you don't find it...just keep it level and you'll only lose about 2 taplespoonsfull

or jsut drain it and refill it w/ synthetic later

when you take the driveshaft out, maybe you can find one of those shipping seals off a old T5 or something and just shove it in the outputshaft , or if you have the top connector of a driveshaft minus the actual driveshaft itself, you might be able plug it up that way.

I used the spare yoke method when i did mine last month. A bunch of club buddies tell me you can get a plastic or rubbertail shaft plug from Napa.
