Re: what transmission

Yah I think they had the Borg Warner T-45 for the manual cars.
They put the T-5 in the v8 mustangs from 83 till 95 when they used the 5.0. When they switched to the mod 4.6 in 96, the T-45 was used.

Re: what transmission

According to Tremec the T-45 is a T-5 with higher Torque specifications. Basically it was used on the 1996-1999 Cobras.

This makes me believe that all other Mustangs from '83-mid '01 had the T-5 (with the "WC" T-5 from'85-'95)

However some other sources say that the T-45 was in the '96-'99 Mustangs with the switch to the 3650 in 2000 (which should actually be mid-2001). The '96-'98 T-45 is different from the Cobra model's T-45, notably the transmission mount and the speedo gear. (The Mustang Cobra T-45 has a 7 tooth speedo gear, the Mustang GT T-45 has an 8 tooth speedo gear). In 1999 all T-45's were changed to the Cobra specs.

The T-45 case casting number is “1381”

Standard gear ratios on the T-45:
1st Gear: 3.37
2nd Gear: 1.99
3rd Gear: 1.33
4th Gear: 1.00
5th Gear: 0.67
Rev Gear: 3.22
