Is a '94/'95 T-5 a direct bolt on to a Fox Body 302? (87-93). Looking to trash my AOD and want to get right the first time. :evil: :joy:

Sorry man, not a bolt in. The input shaft is 19mm longer. The belhousing is deeper for the longer input. The trans can be changed with a new input. and installed with the pre 94 belhousing, same drive shaft and crossmember.

It will work fine if you use the 94 bellhousing and shift fork. Watch the driveshaft length though, as the 94 T5 + bell will be 3/4" longer than yours.

Wouldn't switching to a '94/95 bellhousing and transmission be an effective way to slightly move weight to the rear of the car? This coupled with moving the whole engine and tranny back with a k-member that allows this seems like it could help out a bit.

Thanks for the Info guys....

The dude's got a 95 T-5 complete with Bell, clutch, quadrant, just about everything. So If I was to go this way, my only clitch would be possibly shorting the drive shaft? :confused:

The way I read it, this tranny will bolt up my 302 ('88), but with the longer input shaft, the whole assembly will be just a little longer, possibly having to modify the driveshaft.

Is it worth the hassle, or hold out for a decent pre-93 assembly? Thanks again for all the help!! Don :joy:

Hey Don,

I have an 87 T-5 that I have just completely gone through. It is my backup. I took all of the insides out of a 90 T-5 and built the 87 up with them. All of the synchros, bearings, and gears.I even have the bellhousing since I am running a Lakewood scattershield. It will need a shifter (the stock one got pitched a long time ago) I recommend the B&M ripper.

My 90 T-5 has all of the D&D goodies in it including the 2.95 1st, and the alloy gear set. Anyway, If you are interested let me know.

Later,

Rick
