2.3 and 4.0 had different bell housings. You're gonna have a hell of a time bolting a t5 to a 4.0, not only that but how are you gonna hang a tcase on a 2wd trans? The m5od is a bolt in swap. The right trans will bolt to your 4.0, your choice of bw1350 or 1354 tcase, use off-the-shelf clutch and hydraulics and standard length drive shafts.The t-5 is what was put behind most 90s mustangs, camaros, and firebirds, you can use the 4cyl mustang bell housing to bolt the t5 behind a 4L. What all fabrication would have to be done to use a m5od? What transfer case would be needed?
M5OD. It’s a one piece transmission so the bell housing doesn’t come off. Use the 4.0 flywheel and clutch assembly. Clutch pedals have a model change I think in 88. Get the brake pedal from the manual transmission vehicle as well. It’s different than the automatic. The clutch safety switch wiring should already be in place but will have a jumper wire on it as you have an automatic.I have an A4LD and a 4.0 in my B2, and want a manual. which would be the easiest to install? M50D, T-5, or FM146? I'm on a tight budget too!
