automatic tranny

I have a sc'd 3.8l v6 out of a 91 super coupe. It has a T5 5 speed tranny in it now. Does anyone know what automatic trannys would fit w/ the supercharged 3.8?

The 3.8 block shares the same bellhousing as the SBF's... (289, 302, 351, etc) so anything that'll bolt to a say 5.0, will bolt to that motor. Just remember that SC's are internally balanced, so you'll have to get a flywheel/flexplate to accomodate that.

Are you sure you don't have an M5R2 from the supercoupe? Supercoupe's never came with t-5's.

Also, no, the bellhousing is different. The v6 t-5's use a longer input shaft, and thus, a longer housing.

I don't understand why people don't like the M5R2. The truck-like shifting is only in the factory shifter. An M5R2 with the B&M ripper shifter is just as easy to bang through the gears as a T5 with a PRO-5.0 shifter. Granted the M5R2 will eat up synchros shifting like that, but I don't understand why people make it out to be so horrible.

Yeah, mine has the ripper on it, feels just fine for me. If someone is worried about putting a T5 in it, then i would assume they would be putting some kind of short throw on it anyway.

so a ? for this is.... what is the best automatic tranny to put behind a SC'd 3.8... not going to a manual that is.. staying auto. with changing the flywheel, do the drive shafts need to be changed as well? or are the output shafts the same?
