Question Questions after 4R70W to T-45 swap!

I just finished my tranny swap today, man it's a lot more fun being able to shift gears again! I have a few questions though for those that have already done it.-

1. How come my car will start without having to push in clutch?

2. Are T-45s noisy when downshifting to 2nd?

3. What type of clutch would you recommend to replace with?

Any help would be great thanks! Oh yeah I also have auto swap parts for sale. PM me for more info!

Re: Questions after 4R70W to T-45 swap!

1. How come my car will start without having to push in clutch?

>> The is a mechanism like a white'ish looking box that connects to the pedal assy that makes it so you have to engage the clutch... should be a little wiring harness that goes to it as well.

2. Are T-45s noisy when downshifting to 2nd?

>> Nope, never had that problem although I've heard with a tri-ax shifter it can be louder

3. What type of clutch would you recommend to replace with?

>> I used the Kind Cobra and loved it for over a year --- no problems. It's fairly cheap and worked great. The clutch pedal itself is also much firmer.

Any help would be great thanks! Oh yeah I also have auto swap parts for sale.

>> I PM'd you... and check is in the mail! Thank you for helping me out, I really appreciate it!!!!!!!!

A little more info on the clutch/safetly switch...if you look left of the clutch pedal, and upwards, you'll see a "jumper wire" connecting two circuits. Unplug the jumper and your clutch safety will work..provided you hook up the wires at the pedal assembly, like already mentioned.

Thanks for the backup there... I appreciate it. The snapshot was in my head, just couldn't seem to explain it well enough

I get a little 'whine' when I shift from any gear to 2nd or 1st while moving...seems to be normal in almost every mustang I have ridden in.
