It IS a typo...I asked about the t-45 thing and he said that its a t-5 right out of a wreck... he gaurentees everything to be in good condition... etc. but i honestly wouldnt want the transmission out of a junk either way, i'd rather start freshmytight95 said:if you use the 90 model bellhousing, clutch fork, and the 90 model tranny you will need a driveshaft spacer, and you will be able to use the fox DS as well.
FORCED2DV8... You are wrong in the sense that the mainshaft is not longer the Imput shaft is 5/8ths longer, that is why the 94-95 bellhousing is deeper than the fox one. Ford did this so that the trans would be centered in the tranny tunnel, and for proper shifter placement.
I ran a 91 tranny for a while. I used my sn95 bell, and just swapped input shafts though?
I would be leary of that kit, i have never seen an 94-95 5 liter with a t-45 that trans was made for the mod motors, so if it isn't a typo it would have to have a block adapter etc. to make it work... just more parts... Keep it simple
95Vert said:Thanks a lot Jason. So no matter if I use the 90 d/s, I still need that spacer right? Where does it go? This will be my first tranny swap ever. Ok, so after I go to a 95 t5, I would have to swap just the d/s and tranny itself right?
i think the amp kit is around 1800 for rebuilt t-5 without a clutch kit now from www.bieberfever.com...so i really dont think the used kit w/ new KC clutch kit and cable, quad etc for 1100-1200 is really that bad... even the amp used kit w/out a clutch is about 1300 now...Green 94 5.0 said:i bought my complete kit from ampperformance.com. it was $1300 and change for the entire swap with a rebuilt t5. it came with everything (eec. harness, all bolts and washers, all parts). i have seen some negative things about the company, but my overall experience was good. my only complaint was that they accidentaly sent me a flywheel from a 4.6 and it took them a while to make good on sending me the 5.0 flywheel.
