Transmission Conversion

The 5-speed Borg-Warner/Tremec T-5 is one popular gearbox. Thousands have been stuffed into everything from lowly Chevettes to Nissan 280ZX Turbos, but they're most commonly found in Mustangs, F-body Camaros and Firebirds, and Chevy S-10 pickups. Muscle car fans can probably use one of the tougher versions as-is, but if you decide to slide one of these lightweight (75 pounds) and reasonably-priced boxes into a street rod or vintage pickup, you may be up against packaging problems.

There are over 250 versions of the T-5, with a seemingly endless variety of gear ratios, shifter locations, speedometer fittings and strength requirements. Unfortunately, we only have room to show you one of the most common T-5 conversions for street rods. It all comes down to a matter of class
