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).
