T5 transmisson.

Will a t5 transmission from a 2.3 or 3.8 hold up to a 5.0? Is there a difference in the transmissions?

It's been done. But not recommended. They are weaker and geared different.

It works. They just don't last as long.

+1 they will work, you'll need a different pilot bearing. Ive known some people that have/had 4 cylinder t5's behind their 5.0's and aren't very nice to them and they seemed to last for a while with the abuse.

I was afraid I was going to have to go that route with my t5 swap but I lucked out and found a v8 t5.

The four cylinder trans does have lower gearing than your typical v8 t5. If your just daily driving it and just smashing the gas every now and then it should hold up decently. If your going to drag race it every chance you get and just plain rape on it don't expect and long life out of it.

Yup. Exactly.

My car had one in it when I bought it.
