transmission swap

  1. 4.6L Tech
    I hope I am posting this in the correct area. I have had this account for a long time but I have only used it a few times so I am not experienced with it. I searched for a while on the different engine swap forums and I couldn't find the exact thing I was looking for so I apologize in advance if...

    Recently replaced a 1999 V6 automatic because I lost 3rd gear. I picked up a used one out of a 2000 and having issues with it, no reverse and issues in forward gears. First works fine, shift to second, wheels lock and it looks like the tires want to spin in reverse. Drive runs forward until you...

    So my dad owns a 1967 Fastback with a 302 engine (a 1968 engine, I don't know what happened). We both really like to drive around in it. However, now the crankshaft bearings are worn out and we need the engine to be rebuilt... An option we're considering at the moment is to swap the C4...

    ok, So I have a 66, with the inline 6 motor and have the 3 speed manual transmission. The synchros are absolutely terrible and grinding in every gear and its getting worse. I want to switch to a t5 instead of rebuilding these awful transmissions but I have no idea what i need. Is there a kit...

    Hello, First off, this could be the totally wrong place to post this, so Mods, feel free to move me if necessary. But anyway, I've recently been considering adding another Ford to the corral, most likely in the form of a 94-97 4.6L Thunderbird. I see them around from time to time going for cheap...

    Hello, I am going to be building a 351w in the 400-420hp range and am going to have the get a new transmission to handle the power. I figured I should go ahead and convert to manual from my automatic. My question is what transmission would be best for the job and would fit my 69 coupe. I also...

    So this winter i did a little project on my car. I swapped the transmission from an automatic to a standard. I did it all as a project with my dad and we got it all hooked up and i was sure it was going to work perfectly. I got in the car to start it for the first time after the swap. It cranked...

Dual exhaust Air conditioning t5 transmission (is that possible to put on an i6?) or what can i do to either make it more comfortable or better mpg/hp I am still...

    I kind of just want to swap my automatic transmission with a 5 or 6 speed manual transmission in my 98 GT. Would it give me the same amount of power as a stock manual transmission or would I still have the same amount of power as the automatic gives me currently?

    I have a 1993 Mustang 5.0, transmission is leaking and shifting hard, can I use a T-5 2.3L transmission?

    Ford replaced my 2012 GT's transmission due a second gear issue with a brand new transmission. One day after the swap my engine light flashed them the next day the light stayed on. The codes I pulled were a misfire in cylinder 1&6. What could cause a misfire due to a transmission swap? Or is...

    Okay I have a 94 5.0 and I figured out that the previous owner BROKE the reverse gear. So I wanted to just go ahead and replace it but I can't find one for a decent price but I've found ALLOOOOTTT of foxbody transmissions so I was curious to know if it would fit in my car since they are both...
  15. Mustang II Tech
    I currently have a Mustang II with the 2.3 and the C3 transmission. I want the car to be a little faster. I looked at 302 options but I have the C3 and I would have to replace it to a C4 and I do not know how to that. Is this the easiest build up that you can do? (302 with C4) if not can you...

    My 06 v6 4.0 has an automatic in it, and I wanted to swap out the transmission, I bought what I thought was a T5 but when I looked at it, turns out it was a T3650 for a 4.6 V8, will this tranny work on my 4.0? Or should I just go trade it for a T5? Thanks in advance

    Driving my 1997 4.6L GT, transmission got stuck in first gear. Finally found a replacement T-45. Trying to pull old transmission out, all bolts are out but it still won't drop. Since it broke in 1st gear - I was told it was a shifting fork that broke - can there be anything else holding the...

    We purchased a 289 with a c4 transmission off of a 1965 Ranchero to replace our "Frankenstang" 302 with Nissan transmission. We noticed that the transmission lever on the Ranchero c4 points down, while the Nissan trans lever points up. The Ranchero was a column shift, while the Mustang is a...

    I just got a 1965 200 CID Straight 6 Mustang. I would like to put a T5 transmission in it. I found one from an '87 Ford Turbo Coupe. Will that work? What sorts of things do I need to consider/purchase in order to make it work? A little more info: the car was born a 3 speed manual and was...
