T5 Transmission Models List

A list of appropriate T5 models for transmission swaps.

The Borg Warner T5 Transmission is a popular five-speed replacement for the original three and four speed transmissions in Advance Design trucks.

The T5 is available in many different variations. Various manufactures have used the T5 in their vehicles, but the ones we are most interested in were used by GM and have the standard GM bell housing bolt pattern. The best candidates for most Advance Design trucks are those used in the 1983 to 1987 Chevrolet S-10 pickups. These earlier models are readily available, have a manual speedometer cable connection, and can be bolted right up to your Chevy Inline Six with few modifications.

* Green rows indicate the best options for a T5 swap. The V6 transmissions are built a bit heavier than their 4-cylinder counterparts and the 0.72 or 0.73 overdrive ratio is strongly preffered over 0.86 ratios found on most 4-cylinder applications.

* Yellow rows indicate 4wd applications. These transmission are easily identified by the transfer case in place of the tailshaft, but the transmission internals are identical to the other 2wd versions.

    This was very helpful. My motor in my 1940 Chevy half ton is still really strong but the trans is about gone. So this is just the info I needed Thanks

    I’m working on 1947 Chevy 1 1/2 ton truck I’m pretty sure it has 411 gears in the rearend. There is a bearing that must have sat dry and rusted in the tranny we thought it was the throw out, but the bearing noise is still there. What would be the best candidate for me? The truck has a strong 216 with only 37,000 miles

    I have a 1953 Chevy 1st series pick up with an all original engine. our transmission is shot and we are done dealing with the existing internal drive-line. what transmission would best match up with my existing engine and what gear ration should I be considering for our rear end. I would like to be able to get the truck to freeway speed 60 mph without getting my RPH to high. I have not purchased my rear rims yet as I wanted to see what the best options would be with the new transmission and gear ratio’s. Any help would be very much appreciated.
