    anybody know if a t-5 out of a 2000 mustang 3.8 will fit up to a 5.0? i know the torque rating is less, but mainly using this as a temp/mockup piece since my good world class model cooked in the fire :shrug as soon as i get the shop sorted out, i want to get my disc brakes on & start my t-5 swap. i figure if a v-6 will work short term, i can get on the road temporarily while looking for another v-8 trans then use it to set up the 5.0 in the tr4

    I thought they were the same torque rating for those years... It's the pilot shaft that you have to change to get those to fit a 5.0 IIRC

    If you change the input shaft to a fox body 5.0 t5 and use the fox body t5 bellhousing, then it is the same exact transmission with the same torque rating. I have heard of people using the 3.8 bell and leaving the transmission alone. It puts it a touch further back in the tunnel, but it does work.

    For all of that effort, I don't see why you wouldn't just find one out of an 87-93 5.0. They're all over the place.

    ^^^ that's why... plus it more than likely wasn't abused behind a 6 cyl car
