Ford Racing T-Lok Differential for 2005 Mustang V6
Most V6 Mustangs with the 7.5 inch rear end never came stock with a T-lok (limited slip differential) which allows both wheels to have power to the ground. Usually only one wheel, the right-rear wheel has the power. Upgrading to a T-lok is one of the best modifications you could ever do.
I assume you are referring to a Limited Slip not a Locker.
I have a Locker installed in my mustang and it is insane.
It is the Powertrax Lockright locker. It does not require a gear set up, and uses basic hand tools
to replace the stock spider gears.
It is downright violent with traction.
I will be selling it soon (complete 7.5" rear) with it installed and fresh royal purple.
Only because I came into an 06 8.8 for cheap, and my friend is installing the 3.73's for me.
The Ford t-lok should be fine for you unless you really start building power.
And you might want to have some 3.73's or 4.10's put in at the same time.
If you really want to beef up the car then go with a tru-trac or detroit or just swap it out for an 8.8 or 9"
06 V6 'vert
Black on Black w/ charcoal leather
Steeda CAI, 91 B Ama tune on Xcal2,
GT takeoff muffler
Silver painted shelby stripes coming soon...
Anyone knows any place where I could buy it for a cheaper price (but not despite quality)
Unless you are doing a build of the engine for power with a turbo or other power adder, you really don't need a True Track. And building the 7.5 to handle the power would be a waste of money in the long run.
Just get a take off 8.8" rear end and swap it. Stronger than the 7.5 to begin with, comes with the tlok (which is likely all that you need), and in the long run will be cheaper than buying the parts and installation cost for a weaker 7.5" rear end.
