MDL tooled up and designed a two-socket, front shift, T5 that is great for a pickup truck to bring the shifter up ahead of the seat.
This model was designed to be adapted behind a Ford pickup Y-block bellhousing using our MD-401-2105 adapter plate. It has a longer input (7-7/8″).
If you using a car Y-block bellhousing, see our shorter input shaft model MD-552-0251-FS-F model.

This same transmission can be used with a 94-95 Mustang T5 bellhousing behind a small block Ford engine.
