You are hereT-5


The first T-5 five speeds were introduced to market in 1982, in all things, a AMC Spirit/Concord. In 1983, T-5's were introduced to Mustangs and are currently still used in the V-6 Mustangs. Because of the long span of production many parts are interchangeable and the T5 transmission remains popular in the Mustang, Camaro and Hot Rod world.

There are two basic kinds of V8 T-5's, Non World Class (NWC) and World Class (WC). In the NWC T5's the counter gears spin on straight cylindrical bearings with thrust washer in front. 3rd, 4th and 5th gears used solid bronze synchros. 1st and 2nd gears used fiber linings bonded to steel rings. Torque rating for the NWC was 265ft/lbs.

In the WC T5's the 1st, 2nd and 3rd gears ride on roller needle bearings to reduce drag and the counter gears now have taper roller bearings. All main shaft synchros were now fiber lined steel rings for easier shifting. Torque rating initially was 265ft/lbs but increased to 300ft/lbs and later 330ft/lb for the Motorsports "Z" version.
