I am in the middle of a project myself. I changed a 4clyd jeep to a 6cyld jeep. I didnt know at the time that I got started that the motor mounts were welded and would have to be cut off and rewelded. If I had known that I would have tried to find a mustang 302 HO wit a 5 speed manual. I still have the 5 speed man trans but Ive heard that they are weak. Oh well if the trans or motor craps I will put the 302 upgrade on the front burner.

I suppose I said all that to say I perfer manual trans myself
