Introduced in the early 1980’s, the T5 has become a highly evolved, compact, and versatile 5-speed. In its rich history, the T5 has been installed as original equipment in a variety of vehicles, from pickup trucks and SUV’s, to the fun-to-drive 5.0 Mustang.

Today, the T5 still enjoys life as an original equipment unit in several overseas applications, while simultaneously gaining popularity in hot rod and performance markets. Dollar-for-dollar, pound-for-pound, the T5 is the smoothest-shifting and most reliable manual transmission for moderate horsepower applications.

Easily accepting up to 300 lb-ft of torque, the TREMEC T5 is not only durable, but offers easy operation and a deep overdrive – making any hot rod, street car, or kit car more enjoyable to drive.

Other than bellhousing and transmission mounts, there’s the shifter location that must be considered, too. For that, a company that can put it all together for you is going to be your best bet to save time, money, and effort.
