need to know if t56 will match up and what rear end should i go with

Hello,

I'm wanting to know if it is possible to bolt up a t56 6 speed to a 2.3l ford engine. droping a 2.3l turbo into my 87 hatch mustang from a couger im going to be modifing the eninge looking at 300-400 hp. what will i need to do to make it match up? Will the companies that produce the t56 beable to make one for my car? anouther thing is i dont know which rear end size i should go with. im aiming for a decent acceleration and high end top speed. i know i want a limited slip diferenceal. But i dont know if i should go with a 9" or the 8.8" housing. not realy looking at takeing to track more for a personal car that is realy fast. thanks for any information so far this forum has been a great on help in turning my 4 cyl stang into a monster.

the t56 has a larger output shaft. and i dont think the bolt pattern is the same either. as well as the crossmember. as for the rear i would go 8.8 which is much cheaper and easier to find then the9'' and put a 3.73 gear in her hope this can help
