How strong would a W.C, t5 from a V-6 camaro be. would it live behind a warmed up 305 TPI engine very long? Twisted Evil As long as I wasn't lanching off with it too hard Twisted Evil . What is the difference between V-6 & V-8 models?

av6 and v8 w.c.t5 or 77 mm are not interchangeable for 1 thing

a world class has a better torque rating than non world class and a v-6 t5

t5 trannies were used in camaros t/a's mustang nissan 300z and s-10 pu to name a few

to give you a real world idea camaros in general came rated from the factory

305=255 to 275 foot lbs

350=345 foot lbs

they would not offer the 5 speed in the 350 cars world class or not
they started world class in 88 or 89

ive had both trannies apart the only VISABLE clues are
1 fiber blocker rings (w.c.) vs brass(standard)
2atf(w.c. and gear lube(standard)

to add i still have the t-5 behind my 527 horse 515 tq 406
i just cant drive it the way its meant to be Embarassed
im waiting for my tremec.......someday

the best way to explain it is........the t-5 or 77 mm is a medium duty tranny AT BEST!!!!!!

You say medium duty so it's along the lines of muncie M20, M21 & a T10?
Squeezer what kind of 1/4 mile times have you ran in the camaro with the 406. I'm tring to get a feel for the trans strangh.

Also to all of you. Cheers THANK YOU so much for all of your responces to my many questions Exclamation I should say that more offten.

Here is some T-5 info. It is from a Mustang book, but still basically the same transmission I believe. T-5's in early Mustangs (83-84) were rated at 265 ft. lbs. In 85, Borg Warner started making them and torque capacity went to 265 ft. lbs. and stayed that way until 1989. In 1990, torque capacity went to 300 ft. lbs. and stayed there until the end of the 5.0 run in 1995. Cobra applications were rated at 310 ft. lbs due to a bearing upgrade. One thing I don't like about the T-5 in my wifes Mustang is 1st gear is too low. A 3.35 plus a 3.73 rear all but make 1st gear useless on the street. Aftermarket gear sets usually change 1st gear to a 2.95 ratio to cure this problem. I know this is Ford info. but it's all I have. Clay

the chevrolet t-5 has the 2.95 in the tbi (vin e) camaro and t/a
and is different in a tpi car(vin 8 and f) =2.75


the only good thing about these trannies is the smooth shifting
and is very light

WOW Shocked Even my little 305 is rated at 290 ftlbs tq @ 3200 net. But with tpis mods from there hints book, a small cam(Comp cams smallest hydaulic roller), Tpis's intake, headers ect. Maybe I should think about staying with the 700r4. Or just be nice to one
like poor squeezer has to. Big Grin

The Mustang versions (all I have experience with) will take a lot more abuse than the torque ratings imply. Power shifting is a killer though. I had a friend with a Mustang that would leave on the factory rev limiter and side step the clutch and spray a 150 shot on top of that with slicks. He broke about everything else in the drive train, but not the T-5. He did upgrade to a Tremec before he did though because in his case it was just a matter of time. Clay
