I have been reading post by flat about T5 transmissions swaps. I have a couple of questions I need help with. The articles may be there already but I did not find them. I have a T5 out of a 83 S10. It has the 3.50 first gear ratio. I am looking to adapt it to a 59 ab or 8ba flathead. Depends on which block checks good. This is a non world class trans. I know what the articles and magazines say but I am looking for real world experience. Will this trans hold up ok under a strong flathead. No blower, just good heads, cam, and so on. Also what would be the best way to adapt it to the 59 ab engine. How about the 8ba. The car will be a ford coupe with 8 inch rear with 3.00 gears at this time. Thanks.
