Since my T9 deep sixed, I'm looking for a t5 with good gears for my XR and preferably ready to go.

And a bellhousing, clutch plate, drive shaft, trans mount, etc.

It's not a "same for same" swap.

I have a TC T5 and bell housing with release fork. Make a deal and I will box it up and ship it to you this weekend.

Are you happy with the gear ratios in the T9? Have you done any research into the swap? Looked at which T5 you would like (Over 5 different Ford ratio configurations)?

4 cyl have a few: (First gear/OD) 4.03/.82, 3.97/.79, 3.5/.8
V6/V8: 3.35/.73, 3.35/.68
V8/Motorsport: 2.95/.8, 2.95/.63

Then you can mix and match to create your own if you want. I am building a 2.95/.73 (just like the F-Body V8). Many aftermarket gears now to do a .8 in the 2.95 box.

Don't forget to align the bellhousing. Especially if using an adapter bushing to fit a V8 trans.

Tim, I always thought that with the T-9, First gear was to short and third gear too long. It seems that the 2.95 1st would be more driveable bringing all gears closer together and improving the transition from 1st to 2nd

I have a T5Z motorsport box and a 300zx tailhousing that puts the shifter in the same place as the cosworth. PM me if interested.
