T5 is one of the few boxes that ford UK bought in rather than manufacturing.

The T5 comes in a number of guises and is probably one of the best supported boxes in performance circles worldwide. Borgwarner sold it of to tremec. t56 is the 6 speed version.

do u know what other vehicles it came in? or is it just ford? and if I use the t5 box which I see arent too expensive and find the cossie diff. is the prop and drive shafts the same throughout the sierra range? looking at flea bay, seems that anything with cosworth cost ten times more. is this because its all uprated? or just the name.

now need to work out if uprating a standard diff with lsd will be cheaper/stronger than a stardard cossie diff which I think already has the lsd built in.

thanks for your help. early stages. but want to have a plan of what I building and before I start tacking metal together.

Rover 75 is FWD, only the V8 version was RWD and they are as rare as hens teeth.

omg. seems the usa is the place to get them. seem common as muck. will be doing further research. but you can get them for 100usd. 70 pounds!. this could fund my build. wonder how many types of t5 there is. bonus is they are loads of gm patten which will fit straight onto the saab. will feed back.

Be careful on the gm patterns, they have about 5. There is a list and description somewhere on the Internet, but the one you need is something like European pattern.

I believe someone on UK Saabs has posted up links and explanations.

if I get a uk t5 I will need new bellhousing or adapter plate at minimum. but if I could get one that fits ill be quids in. just have to harrass my friend in the usaf. as they get stuff shipped over for free. not sure if he could stretch to a gearbox though. but worth a shot. not sure on ratios though. but I guess a v8 box should be strong enough for me. just need to get the right codes. seems to be several different t5's.

any idea on the t5 in the cossie? should start 1352 - *??

found all ratios. some have short bell housings (room for an ally plate to change bolt pattern) guess I just need to get a longer input shaft. but its gotta be cheaper than the uk prices.
