a four cylinder transmission will work fine behind a 5.0 they didn't make them weaker than the 5.0 ones, first gear is a different ratio though, before everyone goes screaming bloody hell I've used them in stock swaps and all was well, also 2.3 turbo's have the same transmission as non turbo cars, torque rating from ford is 260-280 for all of them, along the lines of the input shaft length and diameter and how that'll work it all depends on what transmission you have, seen several 5.0 mustangs with 2.3 tranny's behind them though, and they all did very well. The 7.5 will be fine if you keep burnouts to a minimum also (again 2.3 turbo)

Front driver fender (strut tower) was caved in from previous owner hitting a tree. The brake booster was pushed by the strut tower into the valve cover busting it.
