Transmissions: Manual & Auto Tech
 
Are you looking for information on your 5 speed manual? Or are you looking to find out what you can do to make your automatic more fun to drive?

Please post information pertaining to the 5 Speed transmission found in 05/06 Mustangs and post information regarding the automatics & what modifications - stall/shift kit/tuners/oil coolers are recommended!

auto's are fun! especially with a good tune(sctxcal2) and a good converter(TCI 3000rpm minimun, mine is 3800stall).

best run so far 13.089 @103.03 before(hp267@5550 tq273@4450) tuning for converter.

hp #'s after tuning on a mustang dyno 282hp@5550rpm and 322ft.lb. tq@3300rpm.

60'=1.840 on stock pirellis. before converter 60'=2.05

i strongly suggest a good converter for you auto guys. you can't believe the difference it will make. i can burn the tires off through 3rd gear!!!

spyder,
Just picked up a box stock '05 GT today. Love it after about 150mi today.. Car has 3k mi on it and was babied. Shift points seem a little mushy to me at WOT, although a lot more fun than my old '62 Impala w/a 2 spd Powerslide. Does the xcal2 help the auto by itself w/the stock gears? Thinking of that and the c&l intake as about as far as I want to go right now..
Nice ride Man..

PC,

The XCal2 tune will greatly improve your transmission performance. It will modify shift points, shift firmness, throttle lag, etc. You can visit sctflash.com for additional information and you may find their forums very helpful. In a pinch, I have called SCT and they were very helpful in person as well.

pyrat took the words out of my mouth. sct xcal2 is the way to go for an auto. next consider that converter. it makes an incredible difference applying torque to the wheels. that's what has allowed me to dyno at 322ft. lbs. torque on a mustang dyno at that! on a dynojet it would be over 350ft.lbs.

While your talking about Transmissions...

IF it is an automatic, don't forget to scan the Torque Converter thread as well.

i have 3.73 gears, MAC CAI, preditor tuner in 05 auto can anyone offer comment on changing shift points to help until torq converter can be swapped for a higher stall ? is the TCI converter a good product ? or will any 3000 to 3500 converter sufice?

increase your governer pressure.. (i think its just line pressure in the tuner )

I got a tune and was impressed at the shift performance at WOT. It really barks the tires into 2nd now. I do need to call and see how to change it so it shifts differently when not at full or 3/4 throttle. When taking off at a normal rate it shifts into 2nd almost at once and 3rd by 30mph. Probably helps mileage, but I want it to diffrent..

lol automatics do that on thier own, you may not realize it but, you could me cruising at 5pmh, and really your in 5th.. when you get on the throtle, throtle pressure overcomes governer pressure, (pressure built up relative to speed determins what gear youll go in) and youll drop to the gear that youd get the most go from (to maximize rpms in the shortest gear) at 5mph and you were to pin it,youd probobly drop back to 1st

RE: Transmissions: Manual & Auto Tech
 
Yes, but the SCT I believe can program them to shift upon take off at specified rpm or MPH.

Questions for anyone who installed a higher speed torque converter:

What's normal drivability like?

What's best street stall speed with 3.73's but that will also help with racing?

What's involved in installation? And/or cost of installation?

Is anything else, besides the converter, needed to do the swap?

What kind of performance difference is there?!

Thanks!

Auto Transmission question.

Already searched the forum and could not find an answer.
Ford advertises it as a 5-speed Automatic. From what i have found out about the transmission online, it seems to be a four speed transmission+OD.
(with the OD being the 5th gear).

So my question: Is the AutoTrans in the 05-06 Mustang?:

4-speed + OD

or

5-speed + OD


P.S. New to the forum, just bought a Legend Lime V6 + Pony Package on Friday. Extremely Happy:D
