Feedback Wanted For Transmission Article

I plan on starting a Mustang Transmission Article, detailing which bodies had which transmissions, where to find information on some of them. I want a little feedback before/as I write the article.

What do yous guys want to see? I'm wondering how in-depth should I go. Should I do a very over general article just listing the transmissions? Should I do a general article on each transmission in one big article? Or should I throw in as much information as I can for each transmission? Should I link all these individual articles into one big overview article? Should I include both Manual and Automatic transmissions?

What I'd like to do is write a general overview article and include links to the more specific articles (such as transmission by generation). I want to say I am a bit more familiar with the newer transmissions so I will probably at first focus on those, also because that's the majority of our members.

So what are all of your opinions, thoughts, concerns? What do you all want to see? What don't you want to see?

Any other concerns or thoughts I come across I will post up here fo some feedback.

Re: Feedback Wanted For Transmission Article

I say make one huge Mustang Transmission FAQ. Much like our Mustang Tire FAQ: Mustang Wheels and Tires FAQ

I always think its better to have one page to go to to find everything related to the subject, as long as its easy to navigate to the information you want in it.

Re: Feedback Wanted For Transmission Article

I feel the same way, but I would like to see specific information on certain transmissions as well, not necessarily in the same document, but just included. I'm just thinking aloud here as I'm still figuring what I should do exactly.

Re: Feedback Wanted For Transmission Article

What questions do you have? I only saw your one post about putting in a 351w into your foxbody, which should be possible. Personally I'm not too familiar with foxbodies so I couldn't tell you if you had to move the K-member or not.

As for the C4 transmission I think the problem is similar. Very few members on here have the first generation Mustang, and many that do are either in progress of restoring them or have swapped out their engine and transmission for something more. Try :bump: the thread so it gets noticed again.

Re: Feedback Wanted For Transmission Article

Really? Maybe I'm getting old, but I've seen plenty of Ford forums, for all types of things. Then again the quality and traffic of members may be light, area specific or pertaining to a particular club, but as for Mustang forums, I guess you just have to know what you are searching for?

:dunno:

As for bumping a thread, just reply to your own thread. By making a new reply you are "bumping" the thread to the top of the page and/or creating a new unread post in a thread. When people are browsing the threads they will see something they didn't read yet.

Now the process of bumping a thread is an art in itself (), there are a couple of ways bumping a thread:
-You can just reply with a normal message like anyone else would have
-You can just write "bump" to let others know you want them to see it when they read the thread
-Creatively using the :bump: smiley. Type colonbumpcolon except the colon is actually written as the punctuation :

In the spirit of the internet, or lazyness many authors just use nonsense, for instance:
-Replying with the message "ttt" or "..."

Basic ways, but you can always get real creative.

Oh, and :bump: for this thread!

Err... Apparently this forum doesn't have the :bump: smiley though.

I think 2002 Mustang is a great vehicle and its look is also nice.

Re: Feedback Wanted For Transmission Article

Maybe just start with the newr trans that you have more knowledge with.....include the basic info on trannys like " 9?-9? came with t-5 and t-45"....if possible, a list of major pros and cons of each tranny......and maybe even a list of "easy swaps" ( you can junk this one, to use this newer one...but not this really newer one without making major mods)

Re: Feedback Wanted For Transmission Article

Ugh, I haven't even started this article yet (I've actually been working on another "quick" write up). Yeah I'm definitely going to have more info on the new B.W. and Tremecs since the older years I had some initial hard times figuring out which options meant which.

I'm still thinking of writing multple "smaller" articles (or at least starting them) and then linking them all into one larger, overview article.
