Re: Sprit T-5 tranny will it work?
I'm not sure how hard it would be to find, but a World Class T5 from a Camaro or Mustang should be a direct replacement. I just replaced my T5 with a WC T5 from Advance Adapters. Pretty expensive though, cost me $1350 plus $100 for shipping from the left coast to the east coast. Believe it or not, the cheapest rebuilt T5 I could find in my area was $1400! So the decision to go with the WC T5 was a not brainer. Why pay $1400 for a rebuilt weak piece of junk when for $50 more I could get a strong brand new tranny?
Anyway, you might want to look for one of these, the WC T5 is a direct replacement with one exception. The input shaft is a 10 spline, 1 1/16" diameter, where the original T5 has a 10 spline, 1 1/8" shaft. You will have to change the clutch disk.
The grear ratios for the WC T5 are: 4:1 1st, 2.37:1 2nd, 1.50:1 3rd, 1.1:1 4th and .83:1 5th
