Re: replace an unknown tranny by a T5

I dont quite get what you mean, but I will ask a couple of questions:
1. What sort of car?
2. What numbers are on the tranny you want to know about (if you can read them)

Smile Re: replace an unknown tranny by a T5

oh I see... the link to my pictures was not highlighted.
Here it is again,

plus another showing the only visible stamped numbers.

I want to know what the old tranny is, so I can compare gear ratios. (want to avoid counting gears...)

The car is a cobra replica 351W equipped.

txs for any help

That box is a Toyota Supra gearbox, alloy case.

Re: replace an unknown tranny by a T5

I would think that the Supra box would likely be stronger and cheaper than a T5??? T5s are *easy* to kill with a 289 or 302, let alone the torque of a 351...

I've seen many supra boxes failing ( as those were no of the rare turbo ones...).
For this case the T5 should be ok up to torque 300ft/lbs and 300hps.

Re: replace an unknown tranny by a T5

Make sure you get a V8 T5, as you will bo over the limit on any other. Some Supras fail because there are about 7 different types that look identical externally, and the variation in strength is great.

Re: replace an unknown tranny by a T5

Agree on the Supra boxes, it is with the T5s...you need to know what exactly you are using.
My T5 is a 1352-199 out of a '91 302 Mustang which carries the improved steel alloy. So this should work I guess.
