    98 Cobra. Needs a new trans, T45. What years are interchangeable between the GT's and Cobra's and to bolt in with the mechanical speedo? :shrug:

    Any T45 will fit. T5's can fit as well, though you will need a special bellhousing to get it to mount up, as well as lengthen your driveshaft.

    Get a tko, I doubt you can mess it up man. There around $1500 + $300-400 install.

    Thanks guys, but what years did the electric speedos start and can they be changed over to mechanical easily enough?

    i agree here. i love my 3550, the more you beat on it, the more it likes it :-D

    electronic speedos started in 99 I think.

    The '98's are still mechanical
    A new TKO 500 or TKO 600 have both versions avail. for electric/mech. They also come with their own billet shifter so you don't have to buy a new Pro.5.0 type shifter afterwards to fit it. (I think the shifter they used was sourced by Hurst -I asked them once but can't remember the company they stated. It wasn't Pro5.0 though).

    i just bought a t56 out of a 03. almost direct bolt on, only difference is the driveshaft. if it has a electric speedo you can use the speedcal extended range to correct it.
    here's whats needed to convert from a t45 to a t56.
