    They're not the same.

    Look over this chart - you'll see differences in the input shaft length/diameter....as well as gearing.

    I dunno if I would personally buy a "new" tranny...You can find a decent used tranny pretty much anywhere for about 100-300 bucks.

    Even if it needs rebuilt, your at another couple hundred and your still over $500 less than a "new" one.

    Check out the big Ford swap-meet in Columbus next weekend.

    Motion Dynamics lists a "5.0 T-5 To 2.3 Pilot Bushing" on their catalog.

    Is this all that's needed to use a 5.0 T5? My SVO tranny cased and I'm looking to possibly get something a lil beefier for next time around instead of rebuilding the SVO T5.

    Talking

    USING THE TRANNY CHART POSTED IN THIS THREAD. I FOUND AND INSTALLED A 1352-155 TRANS FROM AN 87TURBO COUPE (WHILE I REBUILD MY STOCK) AND IT WORKS SO WELL I'M ALMOST GIDDY.
    IT APPEARS TO BE GEARED JUST DIFFERENT ENOUGH CAUSE THE COUPES 3.55 THAT MY 86 W/3.73 IS MUCH HAPPIER DOWN LOW.

    THANX FOR THE AWESOME CHART AND THE EFFORT YOU PUT INTO IT

    Just something I thought I'd add to this while I'm playing with my transmission..
    If your T5 don't have a ID tag on it, you can take it apart, count the teeth, and if it matches up with below, you have a SVO T5

    Tooth Count on 85-86 ---

    tooth count on the counter shaft for SVO T5's are --

    35-31-23-15R-15 -- (thats ordered, Input gear, 3rd, 2nd, Reverse, 1st)

    The driven gears (on the main shaft) have a tooth count of-
    1st - 33 teeth
    2nd - 31 teeth
    3rd - 27 teeth
    input - 22 teeth

    4th isn't really a 'gear', as it just locks the input shaft to the main shaft, which is straight through 1:1.

    Over-drive gears are
    51 teeth on the drive gear (counter shaft)
    25 on the driven gear (main shaft)


    If you want to be really smart, and show the ratios --
    divide driven/drive * input-shaft ratio (driven/drive)

    So for first gear, as a example,

    (33/15) * (35/22) = 3.5

    This should help you identify any T5....

    The 84 T5 may be different, I don't have one to take apart and count

    yes the 84 SVOs are different as the tranny ratios are much lower than later T5s.

    All SVO's came with 5-speeds.
    So, I'm guessing you probably don't have a SVO.

    You might check corral, or some of the more general mustang sites for help on that swap. Thats not really the kind of stuff we are here for.

    t-5

    look thru the archives. i think there is a chart that gives the tag #s, what years they were used and the gear ratios. for toughness i would suggest the 87-88 turbo bird. for a really deep gear set i would use the 84-86 turbo bird.
    also if you are using anything other than an 87-88 turbo bird be sure and invest in a cast iron throw out bearing collar. these will not fit the 87-88turbo bird t-5.
