Question?
Would a svt transmission be compatible with a v8 engine?

There is no "SVT" transmission and different year Cobras used different transmissions. All were V8s.

You can get a brand new 3650 5 speed direct to your door for $1060 shipped from ebay. Personally my feelings on the topic are if you want to swap from one to the other... unless you have a stupid clean car with sentimental value, sell it and buy what you want.

If you are going to swap you will need:

-Trans
-Clutch
-Flywheel
-Cable/Quadrant/Adjuster
-Pedals
-Manual trans yoke for the driveshaft
-Shifter
-Crossmember/mount
-5 speed harness
-Auto computer tuned to turn off the auto functions

Figure the swap will run you $2k to do it correctly. Which is why I say sell the car and get a 5 spd car. Its not that the swap is exactly hard... its not worth it $$ wise.

Then stay with the auto, you'll be faster. Look up "j-mod tccoa" on youtube and it'll show you how to do one. Basically you're installing a "shift kit" in the trans which will also increase longevity and its only $60 plus the cost of fluid.

I have a 5 speed already . I have 97 gt 5 speed (t-45) . I was asking cause recently my transmission gave out on me . And people keep telling me its the clutch but if itss the clutch then why wont the car stall when its in 1st gear and the clutch has been released. And im thinking the tranny isnt good anyone . Im not sure if the transmission flush i did that cause it . But i seen a transmission from svt engine cheap on ebay.

The 96-98 Cobras also use a T-45, but you don't want it because the crossmember mounts in a different location than the GT. Your best bet is to get a rebuilt T-45 from The T45 Source - Proven, reliable T45 Transmissions

Look them up, call and talk to Zak and he'll go over your options with you.

Although if the car does not stall in 1st gear that is probably the trans if you can feel the clutch grabbing unless something with the clutch physically broke. You'd have to pull the trans and get in there and see wth is up regardless and at that point you might as well get a new flywheel/clutch anyway while the trans is out. Upgrade to an 11" flywheel and clutch setup too if you get a new clutch. There is nothing else you need to do besides get an 11" flywheel and 01-04 11" clutch to do the upgrade there.

96-98 transmissions are notorious for going out anyway. Bad 5/R fork and the blocker fall apart after awhile. In 99 the were fixed with a re-designed fork and carbon fiber blocker rings and are much better.

Its in quotes in the previous posts. Its a mod called the "j-mod". Makes your trans shift much faster/harder and improves overall life of the unit as well.

I've got a 2000 gt auto with 201,000 miles on it. I just did the 4 th trans fluid and filter change and still a clean pan. Would the j mod be worth the trouble with this many miles?

Sure it couldn't hurt it if that's what you are asking. It'll make the car feel like a whole new animal that's for sure.
