- This is my MK1 FFR (Son’s Rally car is next to me) Fords run in the family. So my current engine, a DART363 (6Liter) has a bearing issue. My transmission was a T5. Moving to a T56 6 speed and a 427 Windsor. Has anyone swapped a T5 to a t56 here? I know the shifter will come out of the trans tunnel in a different spot. The drive shaft is probably as short as it can physically be before it causes issues with my 3 link straight axle. How much farther up will the Windsor roughly be in the engine bay with the T56? I just ordered the T56 and don’t have it yet. I have a new drive shaft yolk coming as well because the transmission output splines are different than the T5.
