    I've got a line on a complete 5.0 roller from a 95 Mustang along with the T5 that came with it. Would this be a decent candidate to take apart, stroke to 347, and rebuild with components to convert it to carbureted? Any issues with the T5 fitting in my 77 body currently with a 302 and C4?

    Go for it! I'd keep the fuel injection but that's personal preference. The T5 has limited torque capacity but it's not a large body transmission like a T56. How limited? Opinions vary on that. Some people drag race them regularly with significant horsepower and don't have issues. Others swear the things are made of glass. FWIW I have a brother in law who could break an anvil. Everything he buys is junk within months. I put 217,000mi on a Ford 3.8L V6. I'm sure that's not a record but I'm not ashamed of it...and the car was no stranger to full throttle.

    Someone before me swapped in a T5. Not sure the amount of modification required, but I like it.
