If the tranny was behind a performance engine, I wouldn`t touch it with a 10 foot pole. T5`s are a real weak tranny. Since there`s no way to know how much abuse it took, or it`s true mileage, there`s no telling what your getting or what shape it`s in internally. A friend of mine has one, third gear is gone, while it`ll shift into 3rd fine, there`s no gear there, and it took rather light abuse from a mild 350.
