I'm going to be putting in an 03' cobra t-56 behind a 96 cobra engine. Using the stock 96 electronics.

Will the yoke from the t-45 fit?

I understand that the 03' cobra t-56 has an electric speedometer in it.

The pre 98' cars have mechanical type.

Correct me if I'm wrong.

????Will I run into any trouble with the VSS sender to the computer??? While using my cruise control and such????I'm using an auto gauge electric speedometer so that should interface with the sender anyways.

Will the aluminum flywheel and clutch from an 03' cobra work on a 96' cobra 4.6??

i think you'll be ok with the yoke, flywheel, and clutch. i put in a d&d t56. i had to shorten the driveshaft 1/4 inch. the crossmember was moved back too. i'm not sure on the 03 t56 though. hopefully someone else will chime in and help.

My main concern is with the vss speedometer messing up the eec calculations?? Or does it put out the same parameters?

The T-45 yoke WILL NOT fit the '03 T-56.

The easiest thing to do is to use the '03 driveshaft and change the pinion flange at the diff. The added benefit is that the '03 driveshaft has the larger 1350 joints.

Howeer, the '03 driveshaft is probably to short unless you've got an IRS in the car also.

As far as I know the '03 yoke isn't available seperately from Ford, so you'll need to find one. Probably time to call a driveshaft shop.

As far as the speedo, you'll need to get an extended range SpeedCal.

I DO NOT WANT THREAD HIJACKERS BECAUSE THEY CONFUSE THE POINT I'M TRYING TO ASK!!!!!! MAKE YOUR OWN THREADS!!!!!

The vss from the 03 will plug into the harness from the cobra but does it give the same paramaters to the eec as the old style vss????

I don't care about the speedo I have no use for the speedo. I already have an aftermarket set up from auto gauge.

Let me know what you know about this.

This tranny and engine isn't even in a cobra. The car is 40 years old.

Thanks about the info on the yoke as I am looking for one.

The VSS really shouldn't do anything to the eec..... The only problem that would arise is the speedometer, and since you have an aftermarket or something like it, there really shouldn't be a problem....

WOO HOOO!!!

Yeah the auto gauge adjustes to anything I do to the drivtrain gear swaps and the like. Thats the reason I got it.

I was only worried that the eec would get thrown off like the speedo would.

Well, your question was answered (I think) so I'm gonna hijack your thread. :p How far back does the crossmember need to be moved? I need to know if a Torque Arm setup will still fit.

I think you may have trouble with the cruise control, but I don't know for sure. Try it and see, if it doesn't work correctly, then look into the ER SpeedCal.

On a 96-98 Cobra the cross member has to be moved forward, or an adapter plate used (as I did) and it can stay in the stock location.

On the 99+, it need to be moved towards the rear.

His crossmember mod will be totally different from anything on this board, and he won't have any cruise control issue. He's installing these parts in a 67 or 68 Mustang.

I was responding to Code, who has a 97 Cobra.

And it will depend upon which computer Fostang's using as far as the cruise control issue.
