A girl with a stupid question

I have a 98 Mustang with a 3.8 L V6. 5 speed manual trans.
Anyone know what kind of tranny I have. I have to replace it and cant find one without knowing what i have.

Re: A girl with a stupid question

The manual transmissions in 98 V6s is the T-5 (same transmission as the GT has up till 96 GT (96 GTwent with a new transmission but the V6 stayed the same till 98)

You also have a manual gear drive for the speedo where 99+ V6 (still has the T-5 also up until 04 for the v6) has a digital readout~ only difference really there.

Some T-5's have different gear ratios thats the only concern I see in swaping over, if you get one with different gear sets your speedo will be off a bit.

So to recap T-5's are in Fox Body GT's till 93, then the GT until 95. The V6 got the T-5 from 94-04 with 99 being a digital read out update (tail shafts can be swaped over to reuse the gear style you have for speedo reading)

Re: A girl with a stupid question

There are SO many used T-5 transmissions out there you should have no issues finding what you need as well.

Re: A girl with a stupid question

I say go with a T-56. Actually I know it's possible for the 4.6L motor, but I don't know if it's been done on the 3.8L.

FYI: the T-5 is a 5 speed and the T-56 is a six speed found in the 03-04 Cobras; so you don't have to ask.

Re: A girl with a stupid question

I wouldnt do a T-56 unless you auto-x'ed if you happen to simply want one more gear go with the viper spec or vette spec that actually got the final drive RIGHT.

it doesn't matter, I didn't say anything bad about women, it was a bad joke about men.

Re: A girl with a stupid question

no i understood that.. i was actually defending the male species.. haha

all i was saying was that i don't think its a total embarrassment for a guy to have questions about vehicles.. hell if that were the case, vehicle based forums wouldn't exist being that the majority of ppl on them are guys. the guys who want to learn i have no problem with, its the ones that want everything handed to them on a silver platter that i have an issue with.

anywho... on with the thread.
