I've been exploding T-5s and even a Tremec or two for 25 years, I've had everything from a Turbocoupe t5 to a Hanlon Motorsports pro shifted t-5 and I like to ride around on drag radials with a full bottle of nitrous. Needless to say I can rebuild any t5 with my eyes closed but never owned or even driven a car with a T45 until this one. Even with a fresh kit in it and a billet shifter I wasn't all that impressed. My buddy said this is the last time he's spending another cent on these and already has most of a 400 swap at my shop. While he was here I swapped 4:10s for 3:55s and with a 16lb pulley setup on the T trim the 3rd gear pull is RIDICULOUS!
