NOOB here just doing some research on a 5.3 swap. I currently have a 98 mustang v6 with a gt35r that is close to 400whp on 12 psi. I am considering a 5.3 swap to turbo over next winter. The wiring was a main concern of mine, but it seems to be straight forward. Now comes to the trans...my car will not be an automatic, so what are my 5 and 6 speed options?? Obviously a t56 is the 1st choice, but will other things work? Does it have to be an ls1 t56 or can a lt1 t56 be made to work? I have seen auto guys using th350's and 400's, so obviously older trans do bolt up. I also saw quicktime sells a bell for t5/tr3550/tko, does that mean I could use a 3rd gen T5 bell with my existing t5 until funds are avail for a tko? If so, what clutch??
I did a lot of searching first, and Im sorry if these are basic questions, but Im just not finding the info Im looking for
