Hey guys thinking about going auto in my notchback. its a 92 5.0 currently with a t5 thats going bad. I hear turbos love automatics in these cars, whats all needed to swap with the trans? new driveshaft, crossmember? and do you need a computer from an auto car? Just seeing if anyone has done it on this site.. any info welcome. thanks!

Automatic, pedal assy, converter, cables, trans cooler, automatic yoke for DS (or an auto DS), harness and PCM.

Honestly I'd recommend a 4R75w out of an 04 with either a manual valve body and shift it yourself or a Bauman US Shift to control it. Hit up Click Click Racing - Click Click Racing for more info, you'll get all the info you need there.

Its all good, and yes bumping a 7 month old thread is a necro but w/e lol. You don't need a new driveshaft itself but you do need the yoke, they are different between the stick and the auto.

Off the top of my head to do the swap one needs:

- Auto yoke
- Flexplate
- Converter
- Trans (duh)
- Shifter
- Shifter/kickdown cables
- Trans cooler
- Cooler lines
- Auto computer/harness or a standalone controller or a full manual valve body

If I was doing an auto in a fox I would do what I said in my first post from May. 4R trans with a standalone or a manual valve body with a brake.

I'm talking about going TO auto, not the other way around. Its easier to to to 5 spd than to auto.
