Ok, first let me apologize if a similar question has been asked and answered in a previous thread. I have been trying to use the search function but anything I search for always returns no results.
I have an automatic 2001 Ford Mustang Convertible with a 3.8l motor. I have a picture of it on my page if you would like to see it. It is my intention to do a swap to a manual transmission in the near future as one of my first mods. What I would like to know is will the T5 in the Fox body Mustangs swap without many problems?
I know there are a number of transmission that I could use, I am just not sure if the older models will fit or if I should even venture to place an older style trans in the newer ride. Please advise. Thanks.

The T5 from a fox will fit, but you need to use the 94/95 bell housing if I remember correctly. I'm sure someone will post quickly with better info. It's been several years since having a trans out of a V6.
ok what transmission can handle hp levels around 500? I'm looking at pulling the crank from my old sc and getting a procharger kit with upgraded supercharger that can push for more boost hopefully ranging around that with heads headers and so on. and I know that the t5 wont last long on that level.
