    Would it be to make a 98 5 speed GT, 6speed?

    Is your car an automatic to begin with? If it is, it wouldnt be much different from converting to a 5 speed, but instead of using a T-5, or a T45, you would need something like a T56

    yea 6 speed then put in some 410s, would be sweet. how much are the trannys worth and are they nice strong trannys?

    Im pretty sure the T56 is what is in the 03-04 cobras, so they are pretty strong

    That would be a really sick mustang, T56 is indeed the one in the cobras.

    The only trouble would be the withdrawl from your bank account.

    The tranny is longer, so you'll also need a crossmember and shorter driveline.

    The 6 speed is the T56 - same tranny in the cobra's, corvettes, and vipers.
    excellent strength rating, over 500 rwhp.
    They also have a almost perfect track record.

    Here's a link:

    the t56s are essentially a t45 with a second o.d. (gearing wise)
    they are good for better gas mileage thats about it . however the t56s are a whole lot stronger than t5s and t45s

    the cobra T-56's do differ from the viper and vette specs, cobra 6sp isnt as smooth as the them
