Just the FAQs

The following are a few of the many questions we get about the new AMERICAN BOXER R&D, LLC T-5.
Q:  What tranny is the basis for the Corvair 5 speed?
A: The Borg Warner T-5. A double H pattern 5 speed overdrive transmission that saw commercial service in the Cosworth Vega, Camaro, Mustang, and Chevy S-10 trucks, to name a few of it's many applications.

Q: Which Corvairs does it fit?
A: Right now we are manufacturing our kits for late cars. Watch Boxer Briefs for information on new products, including news on a possible early overdrive!

Q: How much modification is required?
A: The transmission itself bolts to the stock differential with no clutch modifications required. The kit also includes a welded steel mounting bracket that requires no drilling or welding to install. You will have to cut a small part of the floor out under the back seat to allow room for the overdrive. A template is included in the installation kit. There is an above floor version of the shift linkage and a below the floor version. Depending on which one you opt for, the necessary modifications will be outlined in the installation manual. We are working on diagrams that will show changes to the stock back seat frame, allowing you to retain a totally stock appearance.

Q: What are the gear ratios, and which is best for me?
A:  We have put together a chart to show you the ratios we will feature in our T-5A, T-5B, and special order T-5C models. Please fill out our T-5 recommendation questionnaire, and let us suggest the best for you.

Q: What's included when I buy one?
A: You get a freshly rebuilt, highly modified, ready to bolt in AMERICAN BOXER R&D, LLC T-5, all the hardware, nuts, bolts, and brackets to install it. The shift linkage option of your choosing, diagrams and templates to aid in the installation, and a completely new Corvair driving experience.

Q: Where do I get one, and how much are they?
A: Clark's Corvair Parts made a special arrangement to sell ten units, on a first come, first served basis, for an incredible introductory price of  $2295.00, including free shipping. Clark's has sold all ten of those units. Linn Richardson is working on another run of ten units, to be priced at around $3,000.00, depending on kit options. Contact Linn at (425) 485-9807 to check on the availability.
