Hi Nassi,

Can I ask, are you running a Tremec TKO? Whats it like? Worth the $$$?
On a 390 is it?

Love to hear more before I pay the big $.

Sorry mate my previous comment was meant as a joke, not constructive comment.

Personally I do not run a TKO but two of the Tarmac rally cars I used to work on do run them. The owner/drivers are very happy with them. 5th is very rarely used in anger but is primarily used for fuel savings during transport stages. Both are running 363cid small block Windsors.
I do not know anyone here running one behind a big block

Talk to these guys before making any decision. www.moderndriveline.com/

They are the guru's when it comes to 5 or 6 speed conversions. I have been fitting their gear since the mid 1990's & never had an issue.

Note, if going that way, buy the COMPLETE conversion kit, they supply everything. You can use me as a reference (my details are in my bio).

Nice style of website they have there. And thanks for the offer of your name Kerry.
I've seen them before but never noticed the TKO section. I will be sending them an email today.

Seems about the same deal as the Mustang Depot one, except that the Depot does offer a "low profile" option for the BB.

However I like that MD have helpful tech sections and are willing to talk about recommendations etc. Depot just said nada when I asked for help, just sent me more estimates...

Then I better start shopping for shippers, as I may not have enough time order and receive a TKO kit in NJ, before my car leaves, and its already full of parts!

I purchased my T5Z from them and parts in a kit as well. Good people to deal with. Answering the odd question was not a problem for them.


I will someday think of something clever to say.

Is your car being shipped by ocean from NJ or trucking to the west coast first? Modern Driveline is in Idaho so shipping to a port in CA is easy (then again shipping to NJ is easy too at this time of year).

Speaking of New Jersey, have you personally seen the car?

It's shipping from Newark. Saves a ton of dough compared to taking it to the west coast first. (Got several quotes)

No I havent been over to have a look, a pity as I was in NJ not long ago, but that's life.

Had someone swing by and take a look though. It hasn't moved far in its 47 years. Made in NJ and sold in NY where it's stayed the whole time. Appears it's been a sidelined family project for ages (whatever that is), sitting under a tarp since they replaced the rear quarters. Lots of photos seem to bear out the sellers claims. I'm not foolish enough to think there won't be some disappointing surprises but overall it's what I want in many ways, so I've bitten the bullit (ha) and decided to take her. Pity the dollar is what it is, but I've decided life's for living and I was tired of waiting for months and seeing only rusted out hulks sold as expensive S code projects. This one has at least had a lot of rust work done, appears mostly complete, is the model / year I want, the numbers and owner seems to check out, and it comes with a new front end as FORD panels still in their boxes. So I reckon it's worth a crack. Of course I will be a bit concerned until I go I over it in the workshop, and yes it's a risk, but here's hoping God is on my side!

The good think is that there is nothing which cannot be repaired. Just takes time and money.

I look forward to seeing the build.

Can I be a pain and raise the backspace issue again.
Regarding the 67 and 68's.

Has anyone actually fitted or running Torq thrust 7" wheels with the 3.75" bsp?
And likewise the 8" with 4.5 backspace?

I'm a little concerned about stateside stories I'm still reading about them fouling. people say you need more bsp on the front rims, but there's no choice with the TTD 7's...

I'm not interested in rolling fenders to make something fit.
My car has power steering so I can run a wider front tyre if it doesn't foul anything.

I think you will benefit from rolling the fronts at least. Maybe even a little mod to the Front of the wheel arch that Kerry does, to allow more caster.

Thanks boof, I've got that PDF but alas it doesn't offer the exact info I need. I'm thinking the best thing is to just wait until it's in my barn an measure everything up exactly.

Thats the best plan, worst case is you get to buy even more new bits. Win, win. Very Happy

Agreed - it all can change slightly with choices made;
1) Use falcon stub axles pushes the front out a little wider than the stock mustang.
2) Install rear disk often push the type out 1/8 to 1/4 wider on the rear.

Personally while the car is in build mode and pre paint - I would roll all the guards. Just in case that you want wider in the future.
