That I'm not sure, all the signs I know are mostly when driving or shifting. There may be some here who can tell you a few things to look for.
Obvious things are visible leaks, or scoring on the input shaft.

I know someone locally who runs 30W motor oil instead of trans fluid and has had great success with his T5 lasting over 10 years behind 350hp and nitrous. He, and others say the only downside is shifting is a little notchy until the oil warms up, but once warm it's super smooth and lasts.

It will bolt to a lot of engines, both Chevy and Ford.. With that bell housing it will bolt to a 302 or 351W..
There are diff bells or adapters that allow it to be used with diff engines.

I will add, my buddy that's had such good fortune with his T5 has been very lucky..
The T5 is a decent box but generally doesn't live too long in high HP applications, unless built..
G-Force out of PA I believe builds some seriously stout T5 boxes

Looks like mine at least before I cleaned it. Car it came off was probably leaking coolant and oil. I use ATF for my t-5

Thats def a T5. It looks to have came out of an 86 or older stang. I have an 85 an the bellhousings are a lil different on these than newer 1s. I got a used 1 out of a 95 gt an my starter wuldnt fit inside housing so i had to get starter for a 95 also. Other than obvious grinding sounds frm turnin input by hand an going thru gears, theres not too many ways to spot a prob unless u take apart to see gears or have it in car

Bells are universal until 94-95, the 94-95 T5's have a slightly longer input shaft, hence the different bell.

Yeah, I was gonna say looks exactly like my 88 bellhousing, check the fluid color that is you best bet to figure out if its WC or non world class without checking snychros
