T5 gearbox
« on: September 10, 2013, 02:09:09 PM »
Hi, I am building a car with a 351 windsor with an edelbrock performer kit,will the T5 box handle this power or will it end in tears ?

It all depends on which T5 you use and how you drive the car.  I have a T5Z that I bought new from Modern Driveline behind a similar combination in my '66 and it's doing fine but I don't race it or abuse it. 

If you don't already know, there's some good information on T5 capability ratings (max torque, etc.) here:
