Post t5 tranny or c6, hydraulic clutch

hi i have so many questions about my setup. i have a 351 cleveland and a t5 borg warner tranny. first i wanted to know if the tranny will hold up to the weight of my vehicle wich is a 1986 ford f-150 reg cab short box. 2 wheel drive.if it will thats great but if not i might have to exchange it for a c6. another question is has anyone ever heard of anyone installing a hydraulic clutch on an origionally cable clutch t5. the truck i have is hydraulic. i heard it could be done with tig welding or drilling and bolting. any info is greatly appreciated. the last question is does anyone know of a company like centerforce that i can order a flyweel pressure plate and clutch to fit the t5 to a cleveland. ok thanx any help is appreciated greatly

eh the T-5 holding up in the truck is sketchy. They hold up in 5.0 mustangs with slicks and less than 400hp. But you have something heavier with a bigger engine. It outta hold up if you dont abuse it, but otherwise id go with a c6
