Thank's for your help.

yeah, you'll need a tranny from a 5.0L, or BETTER to handle a 351's torque.

If it's a performance build, you should ditch ANY ideas of using a t-5 and go with a 3650 or t56.

A t-5 from an old 5.0L will go south in no time.

You're going to have to change the rear end, and the front springs & struts, and you'll have to work around the PATS as well . . .

Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion. Jer 22:13, 15-17
