The T5 continues to be popular in performance cars today. Here are the benefits of the T5 automatic transmission. They are easy to install and offer good fuel economy.
In the 1980s, Ford and General Motors adopted the T5 design. Borg-Warner also had contracts with AMC and Jeep and began using the T5 in the Mustang, Chevette, and AMC Eagle line of early four-wheel drive crossovers. The T5's popularity grew with the introduction of the Thunderbird Turbo Coupe. Later, the T5 was included in the Mercury XR-7 and Capri, and later in the Nissan 300ZX.

In the 1980s, Borg-Warner designed the T5 transmission. They based the T4 on the SR4 case and added an overdrive gear that gave cars extra forward speed. Moreover, the T5 is an interchangeable part. It can be swapped with other versions of T5 automatic transmissions. If your T5 is not a replacement, it's best to replace the gearbox with a new one.
The T5 automatic transmission was designed for four-wheel-drive cars. The early T5 transmission is lighter than its predecessors. Its weight was reported to be 70 to 75 pounds. It has a high torque and a low-recovery ratio. Earlier models are better suited for cable-drive speedometers than the latter ones. The T5 is an early version of a five-speed manual.
