It Has Begun!!!!!***Pics inside***

It has begun. With about seven hours of work i pulled everything from the engine back minus the rear end Radiator has been pulled. The motor has been separated from the harness A/C lines and Fuel lines and all fluids have been drained. On a installer note the t-5 tranny is so light, you can muscle it by hand without a tranny jack. I got it chained up where the A/C pump bracket bolts to the head and one of the top tranny bolt holes. It's coming out first thing tomorrow. I will post some picks tomorrow when I'm finished.

Re: It Has Begun!!!!!

Here are some pics. I would warn you guys to check your harness at the rear where it enters the engine bay behind the shock tower. The big connector that sits vertical, well on the female side under the connector mines had about 3 ounces or more of water in it. Between the tape and the wires. We get alot of rain here in very short periods which probably contributed to it, but something like this going unchecked could cause problems in the future.

Naw it was a t5 in all of the v6's. They put a T45 in the 99 gt and stopped somewhere in 01 where they went to the tremec. The input and output shaft are different compared to the fox body and sn-95 v8 stangs. I will post closer pics of the T5 later.

Thats what i was saying the T5 had come out of you 99 V6 you got there. mid 01 they went to the 3650. oh, and the t5, t45,t3650,t56, etc, are all tremecs But I must say it looks like you got a good bit of work done in one day

Re: It Has Begun!!!!!

I have been slacking on the pictures, i will try to get some tomorrow, anyway i got the motor and the tranny out of the gt. They got this monster air/hydraulic tranny lift. it made getting the tranny out pretty easy. After that i removed the motor from the top. I was working on the steering rack swap when i stopped. I will try to get some pics tomorrow.

i think they are still using t-5s unless the 05's got the t-45 as well (and very well may have) I know up until 04 they put t-5s in the v6s and they were one of the best/strongest ever made the only problem is in 99 they swaped to a digital readout so you have to swap tailshafts with a pre 99 car to get it to work right~ but no big deal.

Re: It Has Begun!!!!!

I finished the major stuff on thursday. The motor, tranny, rearend are all in. The car is back at my house now to do the little stuff, since the do it yourself garage was charging $24 a day per car it was getting expensive. All i have left is to bleed the brakes and bleed the hydroboost and install the radiator. Oh and also get the key reprogrammed. I will post some pics tommorow
