Default T5 behind B20- what clutch disk?

I have gathered all the parts do to a T5 swap in my 142 eventually including a transmission.
What clutch disk are you using? I'm keeping power stock for now, so I'd like to keep the stock flywheel and PP.

Can I use the $100 YoshiFab organic disc?

The $100 yoshifab disk will work just fine with a stock PP.

You can also go with the Saab viggen PP and a 9” ford clutch disk, depending on how the stock flywheel dowel pins are located.

overkill? I'm happy with mine, but have been finding that it still slips just a tad at 20 psi in 4th... probably needs to be pulled again and a different finish grade on the flywheel.

I'd say so, I'd be looking for something a little more friendly unless you really needed the torque rating.

No issues with mine slipping *touch wood*

stockish build, I'd agree, but if hes planning on continuing what we've talked about, I'd go a ways higher if $$ allows. Its pretty crazy what happens with the torque curve on these with a little low down boost. Even 7-10 and its a huge difference.

I have a 122 T5 swap question. I know you would have to mod the trans tunnel to accommodate the T5 shifter, but do you need to mod the driveshaft tunnel for this swap? The tail shaft on the T5 seems to be at a higher position then the M41. It looks to me like you would have to make the driveshaft tunnel higher to account for this.

122 wagon.... yes. Not exactly sure on a 140, but ease of driveshaft install and availability, I would.

It’s hard to say. My driveshaft is one piece so it definitely had to be done. Maybe with a stock-ish diameter two-piece driveshaft you’d be okay?

I am planning on running the used BNE t5 plate and BH I bought a few months ago- it is drilled with two sets of holes- late (76 240+) slanted orientation and early (75 and down) upright orientation. Dee Works’ adapters system is also dual- drilled. The m45/6/7 BH will bolt to your B20 and you can use the upright orientation holes in his adapter.

That’s what I’ve been told/read.
This.

Cut the whole tunnel out of a 240, and "massage" it into place. The kind of massage with cutting, beating and fire.

A T5 fits in that tunnel in a 240. If the driveshaft does not clear in the 122, the piece of driveshaft tunnel from the 240 could be cut out at the same time as the bellhousing/tranny section and utilized. Yes it is probably too short but gets you most of the way.

Have you even worked on a 122 or welded up any major components on a car ?

No on the 122. Yes I have welded on cars. First tranny tunnel I welded was on a channelled '32 ford my buddies dad was building when I was 14. Seriously man, why you being an jerk? Nowhere here did the OP say he knew about using the 240 transmission tunnel, only that he new the original wont work and it needed to be modded:

My intention was to say that using an existing driveshaft tunnel can be easier than making one from scratch if the shaft wont fit in the existing one.

The 240 trans hump works. A custom 2.5 inch driveshaft or two piece shaft will work in the stock tunnel with heavy mods. Problem is generally the width and cross members under the shaft. If the car is lowered 2-3”, the lower members are less a problem, but the width is still a problem with u joints, especially if you’re using beefy u joints or a dampered slip yoke. Increasing the width 2” and removing the lower cross member (at least on a wagon) is necessary.

I ended up raising the trans at the rear and removing a section of the lower cross members, then there’s the seat belt mount, that had to come out and two 1/4” hoops were welded in, one at the seat belt point and one at the front of the rear seat, this was 2” taller and 2” wider to accommodate a 3.5” mustang driveshaft. Then the next problem was the driveshaft install, I had to make the tunnel removable, and you have to pull the tunnel to be able to pull the driveshaft.
