A 5.0 bellhousing, and an adapter plate for the input shaft, maybe more, someone else should know more.

But the 2.3 t-5 has shorter gears than the 5.0, so if you have short gears then first might...

It might be easier to just swap a whole 2.3t in than swapping in the top half of a 2.3t onto your existing block. Also the 2.3t block would have forged pistons, unlike his current block.

Smell of Burnt Fuel

Today I was driving my car home and it was enjoying the cold air. My car typically has a raw HC smell, which I think is a combination of bad cats and sticky injectors. (The car floods bad on a warm...

Yeah, the stock rear springs are real soft, I bet they are soft to promote under steer.
