  1. 1966 Mustang Rear Upgrade

    Classic Tech
    I am doing my first restomod on my 66 Coupe. Im swapping the C4 out for a T5 and im going to do some work to the 289 to give it some extra juice. Ive never done any work to the rear on a car but im pretty sure mine has a stock 8 in. I dont think it is posi and I dont know the stock gears. Any...
  2. Locker or Posi Unit?

    Classic Tech
    I just picked up a entire center section, for a 8 inch rear end, up last night for 60 bucks, still has the gears in it, that came out of a 1965 (maybe 64) Flacon Sprint. I got this for my 1965 mustang, and was told it was a posi. When i got to the guys house we took the center section off the...
  3. Buying a 7.5 Posi Unit, Auburn or T-lok?

    2005-2010 Mustang Talk
    I am looking at buying a local posi unit I found on Craigs. There are two options available: a T-lok unit with 86k for $125 (told was still tight) or an Auburn unit with 27k for $200. I'm assuming the T-lok is a factory Ford deal from the context. Searching around online I found many horror...

  6. Do I have T-Lock or not?

    2005-2010 Mustang Talk
    Okay so I've always assumed since I have a base model v6 I didn't have t-lock, but I noticed spinning my tires around in the snow this morning that I had snow flinging up on both sides of my car, so I did a little spinny in front of the camera to see what was up. The previous owner could have...

  8. Rebuilding the 7.5 Rear End?

    V6 Tech
    So when i was in the high school league I welded the spider gears together in my rear diff for free posi. It has worked and held all this time but now I want to go to 3.73's because the 2.73's are too high. I can't just change the gears because the whole case is welded. So I might as well just...

    4.6L Talk
    On a 2001 Mustang GT Auto, what would you recommend as an inexpensive yet effective mod for more power and a more pleasant driving experience. Typically what is the cost of converting to a POSI rear? I think this is something I would want to upgrade to.

  12. Just bought my gears/ install?

    2005-2010 Mustang Talk
    well i finally pulled the trigger on buying my gears and i really didnt feel like droping in a 8.8 and really i thought to myself how long it will be until i get a supercharger or a turbo so i went with the 4.10s, it may be a year or 2 before i get Fi, so i can always change to 3.73's once that...
  13. Does the 96 GT have a limited slip differential?

    4.6L Tech
    So I'm going to replace my rear end gears, but I don't even know if I have a limited slip (posi) rear end on my 96 GT. It would seem silly to build a performance oriented car without such, but hell, they also put 2.73's or something ridiculous like that in there from the factory. It seems that...
