I am just starting my 302 swap and I'm trying to gather up all the major components to do the job. My 90' Ranger cam factory with the 2.9L and 5 speed so i was planing on keeping it a manual with the 302 since the pedals are already there. So I'm just looking for some advise from those who have already done it on what is the best manual trans to use with the swap in terms of easiest install and fitment without major fabrication.

The 4.2L M5OD-R2 is the preferred transmission.
