Have 2 questions about transmissions!

First question: what is the name of the stock 88 manual transmission.

Second questions: I have a T5 worldclass tranny in my garage thats been sitting for a while. Is it better or does it give you more power over the stock tranny?

Maybe a c4 I don't really no. But no swapping transmissions won't give you more power. It Might be able to handle more power that you throw at it though

The manual is a T5. Swapping the trans will not give you any extra power no. As long as your replacement trans is out of a Fox, it should bolt right up.

Also be aware there were a few variations of the T5 in the mustang life. Also there are T5's that came in other brands of vehicles.

My short answer is rebuild the T5 that you have in the car yourself if you can.

Non-World Class and World Class..................the World Class has better bearings and syncros...............not really stronger though.
Here is how to tell the difference. The bearing race is below the input shaft. The picture of the transmission is a World Class and has the Timken tapered bearing race.................the other picture shows the non-world class bearing race on the left and the world class on the right.

Just checked and yea mine is like the one pictured on the right side. How difficult is swapping a tranny for someone with no experience really.? Im a fast learner and youtube and google usually get me through all my fixes.

A t5 in a Fox is stupid easy. Very light, bell and trans are separate, easy access to everything. If you have a lift its a 3 or 4 hour job. Fastest I ever did a t5 was a little over 2 hours start to finish with a helper going real quick because he had somewhere to be in 3 lol.

It would suck to do it that way but the T5 is light enough where it wouldn't be terrible.


-Get the car up on ramps on all 4 tires if you can
-Disconnect battery
-Drain the trans
-Remove Mid Pipe
-Remove Driveshaft
-Remove shifter and clutch cable
-Remove speedo cable and any wiring from the trans
-Put a jack under the trans tailshaft and unbolt the crossmember
-Lower the tailshaft down and wedge a block of wood between the block and the firewall where it won't crush anything
-When the motor is stopped, have a friend under there with you and unbolt the 4 bolts holding the trans to the bell and pull it out.


Install is the reverse. However, I would recommend doing the clutch/flywheel/pilot/TOB at this point if they have not been done in awhile or you think they will need it soon. For this, just remove the starter, remove the bell and there is the clutch right in front of your face.


Don't think I forgot anything... The T5 really is silly easy, just time consuming if you are on the floor.

Yeah it really is not hard to do, no special tools are needed, its just awkward.

This is what you basically need to bust it down to. This is a T45 on a 98 but it's very similar to a fox. At this point you just unbolt and remove from the bell with a T5.



It really is a good idea to do a new flywheel/clutch/TOB/pilot too like I said. Because you know if you don't do it you're going to get it all buttoned up and 3k miles later the TOB is going to start making noise.

Pilot and TOB should have been done with the clutch. I'd pull the bell and remove the clutch and inspect the PP/friction disc and look for hotspots on the flywheel. If it looks like there are hotspots I'd replace everything.

Pilot and TOB should be done if you don't know how many miles are on them but like I said they should have been done. Could not hurt to put new OEM (from a dealership) Pilot and TOB in tho.
