    Good and inexpensive rarely go well together my friend. Especially when talking about modifying a car. McLeod hydraulic conversion kit is your best bet.

    Shouldn't be any real difference. Tailshaft housing is longer on the 98 Cobra T45. Same clutch, but you might want to go to a later 11" setup instead of the 98's 10.5" I did and am happy with the feel and the longevity of an 04 Cobra setup

    Modern Driveline was ready to get with me and design one. Had a response from the owner, then I fell on hard times.
    If you are really into doing it, I would contact them.

    The McLeod system uses two slave cylinders and has the one on the firewall protruding over the valve cover in an awkward and ugly way. It is really just an adhoc design....that is being kind.

    I wouldn't consider the McLeod...now that MDL has its product out.

    That sure is a good-looking kit, and it's nice to see options like this available.

    I wasn't aware of the MDL kit until now. Impressive looking kit.
