sn95 to a foxbody 5.0

ok guys im back after a long hiatis from trading my sexy v6 in for a v8 hemi ram. now I no longer have the truck, I recently purchased an 87 foxbody gt 5.0. motor started like crap, and the guy I bought it from said it drove fine and shifted good. until we took the stock trans off and noticed reverse was messed up. so needless to say I know nothing about trannys and now its in pieces. I do how ever have a sn95 trans readily available to me. now I want to bolt up the 95 gt trans to my 5.0 foxbody. I will be using only the sn95 trans, not using it to fix my stock one. now can someone please point me or give me information that could help me understand fully what im about to do. I want to bolt the sn95 trans up to my sbf 302 and roll. can I do this without problems? PLEASE HELP.

It's the same transmission EXCEPT the input shaft is longer and the bel housing is longer. You can absolutely use it no prob, just swap the input shaft and use the fox bell housing.

Can I pick up those 15 pins that seem to fall out from a parts store?

Or a whole new input shaft from a parts store

Mmmmm prob not. But their are a ton of online transmission part places. And it's not hard to find parts for the T5. I am currently rebuilding one myself for a project. The newer ones like you are swapping are better in most cases as the have the most upgraded internals.

So how much of a difference will it make if I pulled the sn95 tranny and just bolted it up to the fox

From what I've read 5/8" so it would move the shifter back that far as well

You'll have issues with the transmission mounting to the crossmember if you do that, the shifter will likely will have issues clearing the stock opening and you'll also have to pay a shop to shorten your driveshaft too. Also have to use the SN95 bell and clutch fork.

So basically, you need to swap the input shaft. There are write ups on how to do it, it isn't that hard. Or just have a shop do it. Make sure you save the SN95 input shaft too, you could probably get $100 for it.

I have both the sn95 tranny that's being pulled right now, and my input shaft from the 302 sitting at my other buddies garage table. I'm definaltey thinking about calling a tranny shop and see what they will charge to swap the two input shafts for me.

You should definitely do that. If not you're going to have all sorts of stupid issues to work through. Like I said, save the SN95 shaft and sell it online to recoup some $$.

Yeah good call, it will be a direct swap when that is done. I missed having the T-5 when I had my 98 btw, they are stupid easy to change because they are light and have a non integrated bellhousing.

One bit of info that really slipped my mind. Was the motor the tranny was connected to was a 351w.
