Re: t 5 swap

stock flywheel is 50oz just bolts up

world class would be ideal, ill google around t5's had diff codes on the tagfor how much tq they were rated for. but a t5 is a t5 bound to break sooner or later, barely can handle a stock ho motor lol

This isnt completely off the wall, but would a v6 t5 from a 94-98 last behind a bone stock 5.0 long enough to teach myself to drive a stick? I want to learn before i build my car with a manual tranny.

Yes it should be plenty strong enough as long as you aren't dogging it too much.

Re: t 5 swap

Are the bolt patterns the same from the V6 to the 302? I know they are in trucks, just not sure about mustangs.

Yes.
The tune in them is just a bit less aggressive than the A9L.

I've always had better luck and saved money doing a swap like this by finding a wrecked car with the parts you need. That way you have every nut, bolt and part you need. Sometimes that's not possible in the time frame you might have though.


Example: On a wrecked SN95 that needed a quarter panel, I found that they were $700+ from Ford and $350 from a salvage yard. I ended up buying a mustang body that had been hit in the front for $150. So you can see the possible savings you might get. Research and price what you will need first, so you will know what you can spend on a car if there is one to be found.


I would get the following parts new.


1. Clutch, Pressure Plate & Throw Out Bearing. (Have the flywheel inspected and resurfaced.)
2. Clutch Cable, Quadrant & Firewall Adjuster. (I recommend the OEM style cable from Maximum Motorsports.)
3. Change out the fluid or oil in the transmission.

Shouldn't be too bad.
If you could locate a transmission harness for the T5 it may just be plug in and go.
Otherwise you will have to figure out which wires do what.
A manual with the wiring diagrams will help you in tracing out the correct wiring.

Shouldn't have to re-wire anything as long as he keeps the a9p

I don't know why not, it's usually just a wire in and a wire out to carry a signal.

Alright not to reopen a can of worms here but im in a bit of a predicament. My aod tranny has cracked and it needs replacing. I wanted to do a 5 speed swap so i figured this would be the perfect time. I found a suitable replacement in an sn95 v6 tranny, or so i thought. I forgot that in 94 and 95 the input shafts are longer. Is that the same for the sn95 v6 trannys? And if it is how hard is it to swap them out?

Yes they are longer by about 5/8 an inch. I don't believe you would have a problem fitting it over a fox t-5.

No he didnt trim anything, just swapped everything. But he went from the fox to an sn95 too.

I think he may have on one of his older builds then. I know he has done many builds.

You need to use an sn95 bell housing with the sn95 trans. The input shaft is too long to use the fox bell housing.

It's no problem at all. Better to ask and make sure than to mess something up by not asking.

Questions are what the forum is all about. We all have mustangs and different degrees of knowledge. Don't feel bad or feel like you have to apologize.

Ok so i got to my junkyard today and went to pull my sn95 t5 transmission. However i forgot the extensions and swivels to get the bellhousing. I hadnt anticipated having to deal with that as i was going to get the tranny out of a car with no motor. Someone said svtlx might have cut down his input shaft? I tried looking that up and couldnt find anything useful.
