Just wondering if anyone knows of any mods that can be done to the M5R2 to make it stronger and handle more power?
Thanks,
Chris

I am having a hell of a time finding the proper 5.0 flywheel. I guess I will have to have the SC flywheel rebalanced. I went with the spec II clutch.

Mark,
I used like a truck flywheel for my swap.I can get you a brand new one for 125 plus shipping and a used one for 85 plus shipping. It will be the same one I have in and I am not having any problems.But you will need to get a truck starter.
Thanks,
Chris

That's a real low price for sure. I can get my SC unit resurfaced and balanced for 145 but I do not know which starter would go with it. I wonder if my stock starter will work.

Thanks

Mark

The ring gear is in a different location on the SC flywheel compared to the 5.0 part. I picked up a Fidanza 164 tooth aluminum flywheel for the, very delayed, T56 conversion.

You should be able to just use the SC starter. I plan on getting a new F150 starter from Dan when I finally do my swap.

S/C 3.8 flywheel will bolt right up to the 5.0 and after having it rebalanced you can use the stock S/C clutch setup. The starter for a 5.0 t-bird and either a M5R2 S/C or an AOD S/C are all the same. If you use the 5.0 F150 flywheel you will need an F150 starter to go with it as the flywheel has a different number of teeth than the AOD or S/C one does. My 92 5.0 bird has an M5R2 in it with an S/C flywheel, and the stock 5.0 starter. If I were to do the swap again I'd just buy the 5.0 flywheel and starter as it is much less pain in the butt than trying to find someone competent to rebalance the 3.8 one correctly and price-effectively. Hopefully this will answer some people's questions.

i do not know about the '94+ cars..

the MN12 uses the same starter in all the cars.. be it an auto or an manual, but i'm not 100% shure about the 4.6L and the 4R70W equiped cars?

Also the S/C and F150 flywheel are the same diameter witht he same tooth count (going by looks.. i never felt like counting them all :cool: ) .. the only this different, is where the ring gear is located.. the SC it's on the leading edge, on the F150 is on the Back edge of the FLywheel..

Hence the difference in the starters :)

you can rebalanced the s/c flywheel and use the orginal starter from a MN12..
Or you can buy a F150 flywheel and a F150 MANUAL starter
OR get a F150 flywheel and move the ring gear and use the stock starter :tongue:

Also the S/C (least '89-93) uses the same clutch as the '88+?? (M5R2 equiped) F150..


and on a 5.0L requiped car.. the m5r2 swap is a 2-3 day job working like 6-8 lazy hours a day by yourself :)
