Hi All,
I've got a 1979 Fox Body Capri with a 302 5.0 that I just pulled the original 4 speed transmission from. I'd like to upgrade to a Ford Tremic T5. After some research online, it appears that a mid '85 or later T5 called a "World Class" with improved syncros seems the way to go. My question is if this specific Tremic T5 bolts right into the bell housing and if the bolts line up? Is there a preferred transmission that requires little or no modification?
Some original 4 speed specs:
1 1/16" 10 spline shaft in
28 spline shaft out
Overall body is 23 3/4"
Input 7 1/4" from trans body forward

No, you’ll want the E6 (1986–1993) t5 bellhousing.

The good news is your d9 SROD bellhousing is valueable as its needed to mount a TKO trans so you can prob sell it for more than what you pay for an E6 bell.

Some use 'talk to text' and can make them look uninformed so to speak. If I think the spelling is questionable I'll google it.
i find other ways to 'poke the bear'. :jester:
