    That would look pretty badass. I'll buy another towncar and do that!

    I'll buy a manual 4 speed from an old f100 though, so the trans is nice and whiney lol

    The cowl on the hood alone is worth at least $300.

    There are a few of them floating around... only other one I know about first hand is Black and Flames over on CVN. I'm the only wagon, to my knowledge.

    Yeah,I don't know how a 5 speed would look in a town car. but it would fit right in in my planned aero vic high speed car.

    would you use the same parts etc for a 5 speed conversion in a aero body (92-97)

    You would need to get the transmission from a 4.6 Mustang, as it has a different bolt pattern. The '90/'91 Town Car and possibly CV/GM had standard AOD with a 302 bolt pattern I believe. You'd have to ask Scott to verify that. The rest should all be the same or similar.

    Default Other BW-T5s

    I have two BW-T5s from an '86 Nissan 300zx, but sadly they can't be used on the Vic because the input shaft length and splines are wrong and the housing is completely different (its also non world-class). All the write-up I've seen on this 5 speed conversion involve using a cable driven clutch, but on the rice machine they used a hydraulic master and slave setup. Any idea if the hydraulics can easily be converted to the Mustang tranny?

    The hydraulic clutch could probably be made to work in a Vic using universal aftermarket parts, and I'm considering doing it when my Tremec goes in next summer. Haven't decided completely yet whether I want to mess with that or not, but it's a possibility.
