Is there a difference?

I know that the T-5's put into four cylinder cars are weaker then the ones put behind V8's. But what about the T-5's out of Turbo/Super Coupes? Those would have to be a little more beefy to handle the extra power wouldn't they? Just a thought.

Well, the T-5's from the SVO Mustangs will handle 250 torque, which is 15 less then a standard V8's T-5. The real problem with T-5's from a 4 cylinder isn't that they were made to handle less power; it's that there input shaft is .59", where as the V8's is .668".
