    Hi everyone! Have been a member here for a while, but this is my first post.

    To keep this relatively short:
    I have a 1989 SHO with a busted manual transmission , and a soon to be freshly painted 1986 mustang foxbody with a rod-knocking 2,3.

    I want to swap the 3.0 SHO V6 into the mustang, and as far as I understand, the easiest way to go about this is by using the Ranger M5OD transmission. Got a thumbs up from the Norwegian DMV on this project, so I’m keen to make this happen!

    I have not been able to find a transmission in Norway, so any information/help sourcing the transmission and all the other parts needed for this swap (clutch etc) would be greatly appreciated.

    best regards, Eirik

    Welcome. Are you looking for a used transmission or a rebuilt/remanufactured one? What do you need exactly? Parts sourced from over here, or what parts to look for on your continent?

    Thanks for replying! I need a gearbox in working condition, doesn’t really matter if it’s a used or remanufactured one, as long as it works. As for the other parts needed, I was hoping for a little more input, I believe this knowledge exists on this forum.. (I think a Chevrolet lumina 3.4 clutch can be used, but need more info on the surrounding parts).

    I think sourcing all the parts from the US is the way to go. I have a shipping contact in Cleveland OH who regularly ships to Norway.
