I cant find an answer, T5 v8 question.

Ok, I've searched high and low for an answer to this, every time I think I have found the answer I get halfway through the replies and there's contradicting info..

So here goes.

Will a 1995 t5 out of a v6 bolt up to a 1994 gt without having to change the input shaft?

I know the bellhousings are different, that's not an issue.. I also know that the v6 trannys are slightly weaker..
I have a 1995 v6 "parts car" right now that has everything I need to do a 5 speed conversion in a 94-95 gt, the pedals, any crossmembers or bracketry, interior...etc.
The trans that's in my car has been beefed up, I have no doubts it will handle the power the gt in question is putting out.. but I seriously cannot get a definitive answer.. will it work with the proper bell, and stock v6 input shaft? If so, will I need a v6 pilot bearing or anything specific like that?

Please please please, someone out there tell me! Lol

You will have to change the input shaft and I'm pretty sure they are 40lbs of tourque weaker than a v8 t5

How hard is changing the input shaft, and is that something that can be bought from say..summit?

The trans I have has been beefed up, I don't doubt it handling the power.. I just don't know if I have to change the input if its worth the extra work than just getting a 302 t5 from a fox or 94-95..

I can't give you the exact steps but the t5 in my 2.3t (same as a v6 tranny) held up to quit a bit of abuse just don't power shift and you should be fine

The older 2.3 t5s and 94-95 input shafts are different. I think there's like 3/4ths inch difference in the 2.

I've heard that the 94-95 v6 and v8 t5 input shafts are the same but the bellhousing starter locations are different.. I've also heard there's a few mm difference in the input shaft.. somebody told me that the v6 trans and bellhousing will work given I use a different flywheel to accommodate the starter location.. idk lol
If I can use this t5, with the gt bell and clutch kit..that's what ill do because its damn near impossible to get a 94-95 t5 around here for under 700 bucks

Ok, got verification from multiple sources.

94-95 v6 and v8 transmissions are bolt in interchangeable. The bellhousings are different.

Older or newer trans require mods.

If you use a t5 from a fox, 4 or 8 cylinder, you need the bellhousing from the same year group.

A shout out to scottydsntknow for verifying!

Glad this lingering question in my mind is answered.. I think what confused me was the different year changes

Ya the T-5 from 94-98 V6 cars is a direct bolt up. 99-04s need a mod to the tailshaft for the speedo but are stronger. All but the most built T-5s are disasters waiting to happen IMO although they do shift buttery smooth...
