The T5 is a highly evolved, extremely compact and versatile 5 Speed that has stood the test of time. The T5 has a rich 30 odd year history that has seen a vast range of uses and numerous upgrades. The T5 is enjoying a growth in popularity in a wide range of applications including Hot Rods and Medium Performance vehicles, due to a wide range of ratios, multiple input shaft lengths and various extension housings a T5 can be supplied to suit almost any vehicle.

Mal Wood Automotive has a huge range of components including gears, shafts, cases and extension housings to build a transmission suitable for your ride. Working with the common T5 from the Aussie Fords and Holden’s we have been able to quickly identify the various T5 units allowing for an educated opinion on the suitability of a T5 for a customers specific use. The latest addition to our T5 range of products is our T5 MS Extension Housing kit # MS85345
