Your manual transmission is an important element of your Fox Body. From stock to racing transmissions they both play an equally prominent role in the operation of your Mustang. There are many different options available that allow you to upgrade your transmission or to restore it back to working condition. From individual parts to all new transmissions Late Model Restoration has them!

All manual transmissions are equipped with a clutch and flywheel and over time your stock parts can become weary and break. Either replace them with a stock part or upgrade them. Your stock flywheels are made from a heavy cast iron. This results in you not being able to attain quicker revs and faster accelerations that are crucial on the track. LMR only offers the best kits possible, all clutch and flywheel kits include a billet flywheel and upgraded clutch. Billet steel flywheels offer a tremendous advantage over heavy stock flywheels by reducing rotational mass!

Over time your transmission can break and rather than having to buy all the components to fix it, it’s sometimes easier to just buy a new one. Having a new transmission is more beneficial in the long run than just fixing a major problem and having something else break later. By replacing your transmission, you can extend the life your transmission as a whole and save money rather than replacing one part at a time. With selections from T5 stock transmissions to heavy-duty Tremec 6 speed ones, LMR has them!

There are a variety of shifter knobs and shifters for your Fox Body. With automatic and manual shifters there are lots of different styles available. We offer stock and performance application shifters to best accommodate your Fox! We know keeping the interior of your Mustang clean and updated is important and with a massive selection of shifter knobs we have you covered. Starting with the classic style knobs to the cobra style shifter knob there is no wrong choice!

It is important to keep your transmission well lubricated and leak free! With the proper amount of fluid, your transmission can function properly by keeping the gears well lubricated and run at maximum performance. Without the proper amount of transmission fluid, you can cause your transmission to overheat, lock up or even worse, completely break. This can become extremely costly and can be prevented with a cheap solution. Shop LMR.com for all your transmission needs!
