I've been doing some research on the MRT T-5 Fusion put on display at sema. It looks like the T-5 Tremec is what was used on the awd setup to make it a 5 speed manual, I wonder how easy it would be to do this swap. It does have an adjustable shift track so that wouldn't be a problem. I'd just like to see what you all think about it. If this is a repost sorry for that I looked around and didn'rt find anything on the t-5.

The MRT Fusion is NOT a manual, it's automatic. The T-5 trans can't be used on the Fusion because it is not a tranverse set up. You would have to remount the engine and re-do the whole wiring harness, etc to run a t-5. They call it a T-5 Fusion cuz they're running a T-5 turbocharger, not a T-5 trans.

The T is for turbo and the 5 is for 5 Speed Automatic :dur: I was way off, but it makes you wonder what auto 5 speed did they use and what are the ratios for it. This is from edmunds for the 06 that they discussed I didn't even realize that they brought another in 07:

"Think "real world." That's what the MRT Fusion is all about. Cranking out a fat but reasonable 325 horsepower, MRT left the engine completely stock and integrated a Garrett T31 turbo and front-mount air-to-air intercooler into the Fusion without any permanent alterations to the car itself. Even the stock exhaust manifolds and catalysts are retained. Off-boost torque remains exactly as stock, and it shouldn't have any trouble passing an emissions test."

it says what turbo was used in this on

and here's where it says the designation meaning.
