dudes!!

ima say no, just because its an OD (over drive) transmission, but i can be wrong, you might be able to with more than some mods.

I'm all for going with a T5 but the low budget and swap time hold me back, I better go look at it personally. The story I was given is that it was bought with an engine for an 88 but the engine was swapped in alone. I'll have to get some part nnumbers and pictures to show you guys, hopefully it's a good one

+1 for going T5. The A4LD is a horrible POS tranny.

That being said, I see absolutely NO reason why an '88 A4LD wouldn't work in a '92 or vice-versa. Near as I know they're the same tranny, and Mustangs didn't go to electronically controlled transmissions until '94 with the bodystyle change (at which point the A4LD was dropped completely).

Function > Form, always

The 91-93 A4LD has electronic controls on 4th and OD, 1-3 is vacuum modulator operated and kickdown is linkage/modulator controlled.

I'm not sure on if the 87-90 are setup that way.

Actually, i take that back, the o/d has nothing to do with the fly wheel and pressure plate settings, nore does it have anything to do with the od settings, because im pretty sure the o/d option is on the shift lever anyway, and is a transmission amenity, not engine, i dont see why i wouldnt fit, i withdraw my first comment, but seriously, just save up and go t-5, i found tons of t-5's for under 250$ on cl from private sellers, got a whole conversion swap from this guy who converted his t-5 to auto for his wife, 300 for everything, trans pedals, weather boot protecter, boot, shifter, mounts pressure plate fly wheel etc, just have to look hard bro, you'll find it if you look, the internets a scary place.

The trick will be finding the RIGHT T-5. A V8 one won't work because the pilot shaft is too big. I don't know about the ones from behind V6s, and I know any of the ones from other brands won't work (Nissan/GM).

I'm trying to get my 92 on the road, the problem I have now is that the car won't move at all, I have left the car running for a while in gear and no sign. Oil and filter were changed with no results.

I have an '88 LX with a fried auto transmission. Where can you buy this T5 from at the price that is listed on the swap? I think I could pull it off myself and around 400 bucks isn't bad for a new tranny.

if its a 4cyl its an a4ld, for a t5 you could use one from a 4, 6, and 8cyl. but to avoid some work just get one from a 4cyl
