Converting one manual to another is easy. But why would you want to convert your Cobra!?!?

My 2nd gear syncro is shot on my t-45 tranny in my 96 GT. I called Ford and they told me they no longer sell rebuilt t-45 transmissions. What should I do now? Can other trannys fit without having to do anything major in fitting it? Thanks

How much money are you looking to spend?? There are plenty of places online that will sell rebuilt trannies, but most arn't really into it for the performance side of things. I got a rebuilt t45 and beat on it, and it gave out.

A TKO will fit with little or no problems. And there are several other transmissions out there that will work with some time and effort. Your best bet is to call someplace like D&D motorsports and tell em what car you have, what you plan to do with it (hp wise) etc and they should be able to steer ya in the right direction.

If is all you got is a busted syncro, just take it and have it fixed, the best thing to do is pull the trans yourself and take it to a mechanic. Pullin it will save you some $$$. If you still want to do a swap, I do know you have to use a trans from a modular motor, in other words a t5 will not fit, can't use a tranny off a windsor motor(302, 351).

That is Tremec's site, all their transmissions are on there and are rated.

the TKO600s are the best transmissions out, by far. The T56 is okay, but 6th gear is useless unless you want a little better fuel economy or if you are planning on going 175 MPH

A few years back I had the same problem with my 86 GT. Luckily my father is a mechanic and he helped me rebuild the t-5 tranny. I recommend the World Class rebuild kit b/c it has better syncros. Along with the kit I had to replace the countershaft, 2nd + 3rd gear. Since you already have the tranny out replace the clutch, pressure plate, and throwout bearing. If you take the tranny to a shop to fix, make sure they use the World class kit otherwise you will end up with the same problem again. Lastly installing a short throw shifter will better your chances for not missing a gear.

I have a t-5 bolted to a 408 stroker using a centerforce dual friction clutch. It has about 120,000 miles on it. should this hold up very long? Also for such a big engine I have been told to switch to an auto, but I like to drive a stick. The car isn't strickly for racing i also, like to cruise. I was thinking about switching to a t-56 when this one blows up. Would this be a good upgrade for a stick shift? Thanks for the info.

I think that the T5 and the 3650 are a direct swap. Ford changed trannys mid year of 01. As for the T4 Im not sure.

How long do you think a T-5 will stand up to 500hp?
