I have a 78 Cobra and I am interested in converting to 5 lug rotors. What would be the best to use (model donor car). Gonna use 11 inch lincoln versailles rotors and booster. Does this sound right? Also wanting to put in a T-5. Is there going to be any body work needed for this swap? Which bell housing would be best (economically speaking!) ? Tahts it for now, just interested in some prices for these projects. I appreciate any help.

The Versialles booster??

The booster should be hydraulic and huge and takes the special steering pump.

I've heard of them being used in a II but I would concider mixing and matching a vacuum booster with a different master.

Yeah, I have a article where a guy in Canada used the booster from a Lincoln Versailles. It was the Mustang Illustrated, September this year. I really appreciate all of your help.
