The Mustang had a "World Class" option for the T5 5 sp. This option has better
syncro's in it and a few other parts that can handle a little more abuse. To
make the T5 Chevy style a "world class" type, just swap out the Ford guts into
the Chevy T5 and it will be a more reliable tranny. I forgot, but I think you
still have to use the Chevy input shaft. The gears are gears and you can mix
different gears ratio's for a custom ratio trans as you wish from other T5's. I
hope this helps.
