Hello, My Name is Bret,

I work for Modern Driveline located in Caldwell Idaho just outside of Boise. Modern Driveline is a transmission conversion specialty company featuring Tremec 5 and 6 speed transmission. Modern Drive has been in the conversion business over 20 years starting with Mustangs. My job is to work with each customer one to one, to determine what transmission and or parts that are best for your needs. If you have any questions about what fits and what doesnít please reach out.

I can help with just about any engine Ford installed into Mustangs and install a T5z, TKO or T56 transmission. Regardless if you have one of the versions above and need supporting parts or you need a need a complete conversion package, Modern Driveline can help you with your project.

A lot of forum members have bought form MDL including myself over a year ago to convert a C4 to a new T-5z. All is not completely rosy though as some members have recently had unresolved issues with purchases from MDL.

I imagine if you put your flame suit on and help some of the forum folks out with some issues it could be good for both MDL and the affected members.

That was kind of a welcome I guess?

I just converted a couple months ago from a 3 speed toploader to a T5 using Modern Driveline.

There is always lots of discussion about going to a T5 here, we would appreciate your input very much. Welcome to VMF!

I'm working on my MDL conversion from a C4 to a T-5 right now. So far I got everything I need and it's been a satisfying project.

Welcome aboard.

This will be a fun project. Tunnel mods are required. About 2" up.

Tech tip. Ensure the master cyl piston is 100% at the top of the stroke. If the piston is depressed even as much as a 1/16 of an inch, you will trap air in the master. This will also ensure you get the full 1.4" stroke of the master piston. If you have any troubles, call us Monday Morning. 208-453-9800

Have the complete TKO600 and hydraulic clutch conversion from MDL in my 69 fastback..other than some tunnel issues...no problems and these guys are great to work with !!
We recently built a Bullit recreation and utilized all MDL components for a very satisfactory install.

Good to see you guys over here!

I've known Bruce for 15 or so years, use your stuff on my road race car and have sent many customers your way.

Love what you guys put together. A one stop shop for everything you'll need for the swap. Love the hydraulic clutch and pedal setups.
