Hows it going guys. I need some output on a swap I'm in the middle finishing up. I have a 88 ford ranger swapping a 2.3 turbo along with a t5. My problem is the transmission is is cable driven. My truck is hydraulic already. I would like to use the t5 in my truck. Any help would be appreciated. I'm new to the forum and would like to share with what I'm working with. This will be my first time doing a turbo setup. So I may have some questions later on as I complete the truck. Thanks

Some people make a bracket and use the slave cylinder from a 280z.



Other people use an 84-85 Ranger slave cylinder I believe..

Other people, like me, used an aftermarket solution like this: https://tiltonracing.com/product/6000-series-hydraulic-release-bearings/

Do a Google search. TONS of info is available all over the net on this..
