Question 1990 Mustang GT 5.0 transmission type question?

I have been searching for short throw shifters for my manual transmission and I am curious to know what I have. Transmission is stock and I want to know where I can find out what I have. T5 T45 are some popular terms I have noticed in searching thus far. ANY help would be greatly appreciated and any suggestion on short throw shifters is also appreciated. THANKS!

Yes t-5, many different shifters will work, just what you prefer. easy to install them. just don`t replace the stick, replace the whole shifter, with short throw that has stops.

yep a t-5 is what youve got. They are actually not really bad trannys. They can hold up pretty well depending on how you shift and obviously what kind of power your puttin to it. Def get an aftermarket shifter w/quality shift stops, this will help extend your trannys life. If you like to speed shift (who doesnt) then the syncros are gonna go bye bye after not too long.

It's usually 3rd gear that will check out early. T5 is what you have.
