4.0L + T-5..........

I have a 4.0L in my Explorer. And I have the same Mazda 5 spd that is used in the `05+ V6 Mustangs. Except I have broken mine 3 times now, and I'm getting REALLY tired of rebuilding it.....Has anyone seen any write-ups on swapping in a T-5/T-56?

Thanks,
Ryan

Okay...I was told the the 05+ Mustangs used a T-5, NOT the M5ODR1HD

Can anyone confirm that?

Yes , the S197 Mustang V6 uses a shorter version of the world class T5 . Its got a remote style shifter and a bolt on dampner yoke on the rear . It also uses an internal hydraulic slave cylinder similiar to what your Explorer uses .

Is your Explorer a 5 speed or Auto ? The Mazda style units are pretty tough .

5 speed, Mazda M5OD-R1 is the trans I was running. I have over 300ft./lbs of torque @ the crank with my 4.0L OHV, and I kept breaking the 2nd Gear, and 5th/Rev Gear...

They aren't THAT tough...

I just bought a 5.0L (OBD II) Explorer, with a 4R70W AWD trans....I am going to keep the OBD II, and install a T-5...

Do you think the `05+ V6 T-5 will bolt up to a SBF bellhousing?

Yes the T5 will bolt up to the bellhousing but you might have to use a SN95 bellhousing . I have not measured the lenght on the input shaft from the late model units but it looks longer than the Fox body input shaft .

They weren't designed for that kind of power but neither is a T5 in a vehicle that weighs as much as your Explorer .
