    Default WC or NWC T5 - 1985 Mustang 2.3

    Would a T5 from a 1985 4 cylinder Mustang be a World Class or Non World Class tranny? Pretty sure the 5.0s got the WC in 85, but not sure about the 2.3. There’s no tag on the unit that I have.

    3.97 first gear for the T5 behind a 2.3?

    Thanks - Jerry

    Check the case housing. I have been told you will see WC on the case.

    Turbo four-cylinder Fords were also WC starting in 1985. Non-turbo four-cylinder Mustang didn't get T-5 until 1987.

    Partial VIN on the main case will tell you what the trans is from.
