Using an M5RE with a 4.6L? I WANT A 5-SPD 4.6!!!
Hello, I'm a guy from SCCOA. My Thunderbird SC just blew the f*ck up, and so now I'm going to buy a 94 LX 4.6 (ABS pkg) and I want to swap over my 5-speed because as we all know, there are NO 5-speed V8 tbirds, and I want one.
How can I use my M5RE tranny (and therefore my LSD rearend, unless the 4.6L already has a limited slip) and retain my 5-speed capability?
Can I buy a T-5 from a mustang and then retain the d/s and use the clutch master cylinder/pedal assembly?
How can I get 5-speed goodness out of my 4.6?
Basically, I am going to try to take everything I can off of my SC and put it onto my V8 4.6L.
