Found a t-45 from a 97 cobra for a really good price. Will it bolt up to my 01 gt? I don't know why it wouldn't, but better to ask anyways.

It is the same, the '97 Cobra's only put out 305 HP at the crank...

[edit]

Actually I just looked it up, the '96 through '98 V8 Mustangs all used the Borg-Warner produced T-45 rated at 320 lb-ft maximum torque, the '99 through '01-1/2 used the Tremec sourced T-45 rated at 325 lb-ft--though not enough difference to matter even if it's true.

Good to know, would my steeda tri ax still fit on it you think?

MGW does not make any distinctions for the B-W vs. Tremec T-45s, so I would believe it will fit. It is my understanding that when Tremec bought the T-45 tooling from B-W they just moved it all to Mexico and started making T-45's.
