Ok ive decided i cant justify spending like 2500$ to do the 5 speed tremec conversion so im goin with the 4 speed toploader. I got one from a relaible source with the 28 spline(so it will fit my 351C). I want to use the hydraulic clutch but im not sure exactly what i need. would it be the same as for the tremec?(pedal, T/O bearing bearing kits with master cylinder, resevoir,adjuster and pedal). would that be all i need? thank you for any advice.

I think you got everything, then you just need a way to fangle it all together...

well i cheked where i would get the clutch linkage but it is a company that specializes in tremec swaps. does the type of transmission matter when dealing with the clutch? cause darkhorseperformance is the place that sells the kit(pedal, T/O bearing bearing kits with master cylinder, resevoir,adjuster). thanks again guys. finally my mustang is on the way to completion!

No the type of transmisson doesn't matter to your clutch affairs, as long as the T/O bearing and clutch disc fit on the input shaft.
As for the driveshaft length, that depends on the type of yoke on the 9 inch. As I understand it, there are at least 4 types of yokes, long and wide, long and narrow, short and wide, and short and narrow. That is about the extent of my knowledge, so I will step aside and let someone else who hopefully has a correct length step in and answer
