Someone in MN posted on Craigslist a F4ZR-7003-AC(1352-238).

Can I use this to replace my existing T5?

Not a direct swap. Input shaft is a different length and pilot bushing is a different diameter. There are work arounds for those issues. Also, gear ratios are different.

Thanks.  I was hoping for an easy one.

Is it geared lower or higher?  I'm pondering (pondering) a 351 Windsor next year.  Would like some better gearing for a different engine.

Don't worry to much hardcore turbo fans.  It's pondering and right now the chance of it happening are around 20%.
