    I know this has been gone over but I can't seem to find a straight answer. I just rebuilt a 1984 351w HO out of a 84 f250 and has a 164T C6 flex plate attached. I also purchased a C4 that has the 164t housing.. My flex plate bolts right to the c4 torque converter. My question is, will a 164t bell/flexplate fit in a 93 fox body mustang! Or do I HAVE to convert to a 157? The torque and flex plate I have are brand new but nobody seems to know if it fits! It is a pan filled c4. Please help

    I don't see why it wouldn't.
    A Ford Maverick (very small car) will take a 164t, and the Fox has much more room.
    You may or may not have trouble with headers is the only thing I can think of.
    You have C5 there. (164t bell and pan fill = C5, a heavy duty C4)


    Edit:
    Since you are going with a 351, chances are much less likely for the headers to hit the bell.
    The 351 is wider... I was thinking 302 when I was thinking about headers.
