i decoded a t5 that is for sale and it said: 1987 mustang/capri 2.3 l4 efi wc

does the wc stand for world class? will this trans live behind a 300hp 351?

thanks, adam

Dont even bother, a T5 from a 5.0 can barely hold up to a 302 , much less a 351 and even less one from a 2.3L.

Ignore it. You need something like a Tremec TKO to handle that torque. T5 is not the way to go.

A naturally aspirated four-cylinder T5 would not be "world class" anyway. And the gear spread between first and second and second and third is even more pronounced than the V8 version(s), making it weaker (not able to handle as much torque).
