Click on his name in one of his posts. Select "Send a Private Message".


The only thing you can cut on the input shaft is the tip that goes into the pilot bearing.
You would need to ensure that enough is left to support the end of the shaft, otherwise the transmission will fail very quickly.
Cutting it will be difficult as it is hardened steel.
IMHO, I would not recommend it.

i just did a little digging around and have not found anyone else that has actually cut it.

i think the only way i would cut it if i had both full setups and could get a perfect measurement. i think the "proper" way is to actually change the input shaft.

you can you use a sn95 bell housing. but this leaves you with 2 problem which may or may not matter.

. 1: it will move the trans back. this will cause the shifter to move back.

2: you will have to make sure that the drive shaft is not to long. most people say it will be ok, but it cuts it close. so it needs to be checked.

Ok That's actually a higher ratio transmission and with the .63 OD gear you will be fine on the highway.

My guess would be putting all that low end torque to the ground that the 5.0 makes..

Getting the car moving and keeping it moving. Try shifting from 1st to 3rd sometime and you'll see what I mean.
In an ideal scenario you would want each gear change to keep your RPM's in a certain range without them falling off too much, but that would lead to too many frequent gear changes for street driven cars, so the manufacturers have to compromise a bit to keep the buyers happy.

Example: Here is a ratio set I use in an online drag racing game to keep my virtual Mustang in it's power band.

1st Gear - 2.936
2nd Gear - 2.40
3rd Gear - 1.90
4th Gear - 1.60
5th Gear - 1.31
Rearend Gear - 3.08

Compare it to the actual ratio of your transmission and you will see what I mean.

Extreme Velocity 3D - Link is to the left and in my signature, my username is TJH86.
The nerve damage in my neck, arm and back make it difficult for me, but sometimes I do pretty good.
I'd love to see any of you guys on there and race with you from time to time.
