Got the tranny in am now working on the crossmember, I remember someone having the driveline hitting under the car, anyone who did this swap know how low the front driveline yolk should be from the floor pan ? or any other measurement that might help me with this. Thanks

Tuck it up as far as you easily can while keeping in mind, your pinion shaft in the rear end and your output shaft in your transmission need to be as close to parallel as possible. The one other consideration is you want a few degree angle at each ujoint so the needle bearings in the ujoints move. If the two shafts are pointing directly at each other, the needles won't move and will wear grooves in the joints.

You are going to love the T-5.

Thanks John, I was thinking of jacking up the tranny until It looks like there is very little weight or sag to the motor mounts on the bell housing, thought that might get me in the ball park ?.

You can measure the pinion angle and try to match that with the trans. Normally around 3 or 4 degrees down on the tranny end.
