Been toying with the idea of installing a manual transmission in my '74 Cougar.
Is there a semi-modern budget friendly 5-speed that would hold up behind a 528 producing 600-650 lb-ft of torque in a heavy car?
I've heard of guys running a TR3550 behind some pretty built small blocks in lighter cars with some success.
This is a street car with street tires. I wouldn't even mind going with a Toploader as one could probably go with all factory Ford parts for the conversion.
Any of you guys done something like this?

Any and all input appreciated.
