T-5 trans question
I am currently still doing sheet metal work on my 73 but picked up a 351C 2v from another member a couple months ago. While I am at it, I was thinking about what trans I want to use. Car was originally an automatic but already has the clutch pedal setup installed. I have heard about members putting a T5 5 speed transmission in and loving it. Any advice on what year/vehicle model, etc that I can look for in my search? Also, any bell housing information that I may need to know for correct setup would be greatly appreciated. 

Thanks all

Thanks Don, I appreciate the really quick reply.

86 to 93 T5. Stock Fox Body bell housing. Are you using a cable set up? I recommend it. Make sure you get 86 to 93. 94-95 have a longer input shaft and the shifter is farther back. Before 86 they were not the WC (world class) trans. MDL (modern drive line) sells a very nice cable set up. I had to have my driveshaft shortened and rebalanced. It is a fantastic upgrade. I have a thread on here somewhere detailing the FMX to T5 swap that lists a lot of the parts used.

'73 Grandé H Code. Headman long tube headers, T-5 Transmission, 3.70 Traclok, Lowered 1" all around, Aussie 2v heads w/ 2.19 intake, 1.71 exhaust, screw in studs, full roller cam 608/612 lift 280/281 duration LSA 112, Quick Fuel 750 CFM double pumper, AirGap intake.

'73 F code convertible. Bright red. Needs total restore. (IE HOT MESS)
