professional opinion ont-5

ive been given a free t-5 tranny the front bearing retainer has a stripped bolt in it but im a machinist thats no problem gears seem to be in good shape synchronizers are shot but besides that it seems good my only concern is I have a 383 stroker and i dont have the engine specs but im concerned if it will hold. ive heard a couple old guys tell me that theyseen run fine under some strong engine if you were easy on the shifting its a WC t-5

so what do you guys think?

T5 History in Ford Mustangs with specifications for World class and non-World class T5's Modern Driveline

There you go..The T-5 may hold up in your car but then maybe not..

I have tried most all of it and now do what is known to work..

fix the trans,sell it,buy something you need. Why build a strong engine you cannot exploit?

if its a world class case and the tailhousing puts the shifter where you need it; and you have some money, call Tony at Astro Performance, they have a gearset for what you're doing. But, non world class 3-4 synchro rings have been discontinued by TTC/Tremec. also TKO 5/600 1st speed gears are on the disco'd list as well for service items (retail production only).
