Street Trucks - - WORD ON THE STREET -

THE BORG-WARNER/TREMEC T5 IS A FIVESPEED MAN­UAL TRANS­MIS­SION FIRST WIDELY DIS­TRIB­UTED IN 1982. Though avail­able for many dif­fer­ent plat­forms through­out the years, it has been es­pe­cially pop­u­lar as a cheap al­ter­na­tive when con­vert­ing to a man­ual trans­mis­sion, specif­i­cally for Ford and GM ap­pli­ca­tions. The T5 came equipped on many Chevy S-10s, as well as Astro vans, but a beefier ver­sion from the Ca­maro could also be used. If you want to row your own with­out break­ing the bank, the T5 is a vi­able op­tion for sub-300-ft-lb torque-rated en­gines. There are way too many vari­ables to dis­cuss here, so do your re­search when de­cid­ing which T5 is best for your ap­pli­ca­tion.
