Some guy told me that the t5 is only good for half a dozen runs
But you still don't have to be all rude about it

I'm not being rude at all just pointing out the obvious. Also "some guy" sound like an internet racer...

Fact of the matter is that a T-5 can hold up just fine for a lot of runs. Depends on the rest of the setup. If someone making 500hp is trying to do 10s on a stock T-5... it may hold for a bit but is living on borrowed time. On my old foxes and my 95 Cobra I beat the living **** out of the T-5s in those and never had an issue. Those were mostly bolt on cars tho.


There is also the A5 which is technically a T5 although all it really keeps from the stock trans is the case and 5/R. And the case can even be upgraded. The A5 is probably THE best manual transmission you can put in a 04-down car.

Back in the 90's I had a bolt on car with a 125 shot that lasted a few years with a stock T5 and a centerforce clutch. I bullied and beat that car and it lasted till "that day". I rebuilt that T5 and it was never the same again. Swapped to an early 3550 and I pretty much hated that tranny so sold it to buy a built T5. Man I should have kept that car.


Almost Stock pretty much outlined what you need. There have been a few guys that put together a package on ebay but it is around 1,500 and up. Maybe if you look on craigslist but it is not a cheap undertaking.


The other thing you never know what you are getting with a used transmission as there is no real way to test them out of the car.

I would never buy a used trans unless it was one that I could test I the car and then watch the guy pull (or help him pull) afterwards.

So untrustworthy LOL.

Used trannies is not something I would bet on.

The T5 is in a lot of vehicles too so watch out and if you can purchase a World Class T5, they had higher ratings back in the day if I recall correctly.
