1968 Corvette T5 of T5WCJune 4, 2015 - Author: bartbarton - No Comments
I have a 1968 Corvette.
Question: I’m looking to drop a T-5 in my 68 vet. Was looking for a world class 1352-176, -182, -196, or -213. They all should be about the same. Was also wondering what kind of torque they are rated for. The engine I am running is a mild 327 with a rear gear of 3.08. I’ve seen some rated for 300 ft lb of torque and others for 600 ft lb torque. I don’t want to tear it up. I see that most of these sat behind a 5.0 liter F-body so I would think they would work behind a 327 with about 350 Hp.
Answer: The T5 will be a little light for the 327CID with 350 HP it will work if driven only and not a drag race car.
You would want the T5 Camaro World Class unit and this would have the mechanical speedometer provision required. There would be drive shaft mod’s, cross member mod’s and poss tunnel mods to be made
These are hard transmissions to come by but we could find and rebuild one cost would be $1700 outright no core required, plus freight. Give Scott a call toll free 888-824-2012 he can help you. You can find a complete list of transmission, rebuild kit and hard part for T5 transmissions on our site.
