Good evening all,

I have a question regarding a 5.0 swap that I am wanting to perform on my 84 BII...

Currently, the transmission in the BII is a C5 and I'm pretty sure it will bolt up to the 5.0 I have, but most swaps usually use the C4 transmission instead...

My question is, do you think the C5 would be able to handle the power of the 5.0? It's currently hooked to a 2.8 V6...

If it can handle the power, what would be the pros/cons of using this transmission over a C4?

Thanks!

Yeah, I got a 302 out of a late 80's model Mustang that needs to be torn down and rebuilt... got it for cheap as hell from a buddy of mine about 3 years ago...

I guess your'e already into the swap, atleast getting started, are you using conversion parts readily purchased? Best of luck, lots of fun when completed.

Very nice!!! Whenever I do a swap when my 3.0 dies(which will be quite a while!) I want to do a good powdercoat job on the engine too.

After seeing the Lightning Bolt im thinking a 5.4!!! If not then I want to go with either a newer 302 or a Tom Morana 4.4L complete engine V6... the whole thing is cast aluminum, forged internals, and ready for 20lbs of boost straight out of the box... crazy power coming from a Ford Morana 4.4 V6 stroker! Its based on the 3.8 Ford V6...
