SCRATH AND DENT SPECIAL – SAVE MONEY OVER REGULAR PRICE
This adapter plate has a damaged thread on one of the hole. The damage is only to the first 3-4 turn of the thread; all remaining thread is nice and strong. I actually use these tapped hole to hold the plate for the final machining operation so I know it still have enough thread left to allow for a proper torquing. Please see red circle in picture.
Another swap that is getting more popular is to swap a 5 cylinder engine from a whiteblock equiped car into a RWD volvo chassis. The biggest part of the puzzle is now well covered with these adapter that allow you to mount a Ford T5 transmission behind the powerplant and enjoy shifting gears with the nice soundtrack of the volvo 5 pot up front. T5 are easy to find and can be rebuilt for cheap and can be made to handle a lot of power, making them a good trasnsmission choice for an easy swap.
These adapter are CNC Milled out of 6061-T6 Aluminum and will perfectly mate your T5 bellhousing to the T5 transmission. They feature two sets of tapped hole allowing you to mount the engine slanted or straight. All bolts are included.
All information regarding the swap (Clutch/Flywheel/PP combo, Clutch Hydraulic, Driveshaft etc…) has been well documented over the years on the turbobricks.com forum and is left to the end user. If you have swapped a T5 engine into your RWD car or plan to do, then this step shouldn’t cause you any concern.
