JT, I converted mine over almost 10 years ago and couldn't be happier with it. I was able to fabricate the parts to make replicas of the mechanical linkage. It required a ton of planning but I am and always have been a low buck kind of hot rodder. I used the 94-96 version of the T-5 as it has a longer input shaft that moves the shifter to the middle of the existing shifter hole. I also used a V-6 bellhousing as that will accommodate the original 73 11" clutch. It's really an amalgam of parts I stumbled across. The release lever is from a mid 60's GM pickup, the throwout bearing is from a Fox body Mustang... etc. At the time I heard about too many issues with the hydraulic slave cylinders but I think the hydraulic throw out bearing would be a good option but it was out of my budget at the time. BTW, I used the Modern Driveline retrofit clutch pedal and have been incredibly happy with it.
Remember... ANY PROPER HOT ROD NEEDS 3 PEDALS!!
