mustang t5
1985-1990 265ft lbs
1990-1995 wc 300ft lbs
1993 z spec(svt) 330ft lbs

1985-1992 camaro tpi 265ft lbs(not sure if there is any upgrade t5s for camaros)

there were well over 200 different applications for the t5 and just as many different torque ratings those are the v8 applications i know of off the top of my head.

d&d motorsports makes a kit with aloy gears and brings the rating up too 400ft lbs

T-5 capabilities

I own three T-5 five speed transmissions. All are behind Chevy inline sixes and all have performed flawlessly. One behind a full pressure 216; one behind a 261 performance engine and the last behind a 292 Chevy with the lumpport head and a Clifford triple intake manifold with Weber carburetors mounted on it. That last one is a torque monster. I'm using Lokar short throw shifters on all of them. two with 16" sticks and the other with a 12" stick. I'm happy and no problems to date.
