has anyone gone down the road of a T56 swap and lived to tell about it. i dont see anybody posting anything about this for the super coupes. mainly just a few here and there with V8s.
I'm trying to remember which years of F-body's had the T-56?The nice part being you can put the Viper internals into the F-Body T56 to build it up.
Mcleod Industries has everything you need to do the transmission adaption with their Modular Bellhousing system. You'll also need a flywheel with a 26spline clutch.

I would imagine you can, but that won't help you much because the Mustang only came with a 4.6 bellhousing. You might be able to have an adaptor plate made to allow the GM transmission to bolt up to a 302/351. There is a website (www.5speedtransmissions.com) that has a lot of good info on 5 and 6-speed swaps. They also have a bellhousing for the t56 with an external slave cylinder already mounted up. Which is probably the way I'll go when I do the swap.MadMikeyL said:For those who have had a T56 apart, rather than using the McLeod bellhousing, can you swap the bell housing from a mustang T56 and an F-body T56?
Where did you find a T-56 for $1200? Cheapest I've been finding (about $2000) makes it worth my while to buy a NEW one for $2500.I want a six speed so bad... unfortunately i dont have the funds to back it up. 1200 dollars? i like my 300 dollar M5R2, lol.
It all depends on the rear end gears. I'm planning on running a T56 with the 0.50 overdrive and a set of 3.90 gears. Which is an overall ratio of 0.50x3.90 = 1.95. My T5 has a 5th gear ratio of 0.68 and with the stock 3.08 gears. Overall ratio 0.68x3.08 = 2.09. Which means that I'll get better mileage, even going from 3.08 to 3.90I wonder how it would effect gas milage on an sc or even the lx....
