Excellent! I was told the stock torque converter should work, but if I'm swapping out transmission it probably makes sense to get new TC too.
Looking at RockAuto the stock TC has a 11.375 bolt pattern while a 2000 Mustang has 10.625. All of the other specs between the two TC's are identical.
Should I stick with stock sized TC for TBird, or get the TC for 2000 Mustang that matches transmission I'm putting in? Both have "mid stall" listed for stall speed so I don't know if I'd be gaining anything by putting in Mustang TC....and if I need to do anything else to get the transmission to fit?
Flex plate too from a mark VIII if I recall correctly. However I could be mistaken.
