I have a 94 mustang with the 3.8v6 an was going to pull the t5 out of the 94 to swap in my 80 fox that has a 302ci. 4speed. Will the bell housing in the 80fox work with the t5? Do I need an adopter plate? I know I'll need to go up to a 10.5 fly an clutch set up. Just need to know will this swap work? What do I need to compleat the swap?

The T5 out of your 94 V6 will not be compatible with the 4-speed bellhousing in your 1980. The V6 T5 is a weaker unit than its V8 counter parts and features different gear ratios as well, making in less than ideal to use behind a V8.

what is the torque rating on this heavy duty upgrade T5?
I have a standard T5 now with an engine build of gt40 intake manifold, gt40 iron heads, bbk CAI, bbk 70mm throttle body, e303 cam, smog and a/c delete, bbk shorty ceramic headers, bbk catted xpipe, flowmaster super 44s, and 3.73 gears, and short throw.

It is not a direct swap and I would recommend getting this transmission because the install will be much easier and it will fit properly. In order to get a T-5 out of a 87-93 to fit in a 94-95 you will need a driveshaft spacer made and an adjustable cross-member because the transmission is shorter. Then you will need a clutch fork and bell housing for a 87-93. The issues you will have is the clutch fork will hit the firewall so you will have to clearance the firewall and it will move the shifter forward inside the car and cause fitment issues there.

Carlito, This is not a direct bolt in to swap for an automatic. You will need a bellhousing for a 94-95 5.0 Mustang, the pedal assembly, clutch cable linkage and fork. Just swapping this transmission will not be all you need. The bellhousing will have to be found used or on a donor or salvage car.

This is a direct replacement for 94-95 Cobras. It will come with the longer input shaft/bearing retainer needed to correctly install. You will not have to make any additional modifications or source any additional parts.

No sir, this transmission will not fit. The LRS-7003A will fit, but the gear ratios are radically different than the V6 transmission and driveability/performance will suffer. It is best to repair your V6 transmission if at all possible.
