Are the t-5 for a 94 any stronger?
I forgot to answer this in my last reply.1994-97 t-5 trans torque rating is the exact same for a 86 5.0 trans.265 lb/ft.In fact the only difference is the input shaft length and the o/d gear.You will loose a bit of speed on the highway but all other gears are the same.The 1986 5th gear is 0.68. And the 94-97's are 0.73 (3.8 only).Your speedo drive gear also changes to an 8 tooth.Your stock 86 t-5 is a 7 tooth.
Yea I agree.My stock trans is rated at 300lb/ft and that broke.I am now using one from an 89lx 2.3L rated at 240 lb/ft I can't break it!?? I have done things to this trans that should just destroy it.Huge shock loads but it still keeps shifting.:bigthumbsup The gear ratio's suck though.
