Well had alittle time to take a look under the stang, for the Viper T56 change.
I am in the process of building a 408.
But right now I would like to install the tranny to the 302.
I have longtube headers.
I just want to drop the old T5 out and swap the new one. BUT
Without removing the engine or headers.
Has anyone done this???

Thanks

So you left the engine in the car and from underneath, you removed the tranny?

It just looks like there is no way(with longtubes) the stock T5 will come down.

You can do it. People have posted about changing their clutch without fooling with the full lenght headers, only the H-pipe.

The transmission shouldn't be a problem. With some headers, removing the bellhousing is harder than solving a Rubik's Cube, but it usually will come out.

i changed rear mail seal on my 90 GT with longtubes its hell but it can be done.Come out much easier than going back in. Youll have to twist turn and pull but it ll make it. if you really want to you can pull pass. side header and it will go much smoother.

So did you guys install the bellhousing first then the tranny?
Or did you guys do it all in one??
Thanks everyone

Install the bellhousing first. It will usually take some weird angle to get it in, but it should go in. Then the tranny should be no problem.
