    True statement. Take a look at D&D's web site picture of the D93 and tell me if you think that cast or not. Don't see a fat parting line where you typically see one in the middle of the part.

    Forged or billet is preferable over cast ........... we may not have a choice

    Appreciate the feedback.

    Well if I ever break it I'll report back. I'm usually a top candidate for breaking stuff :) lol

    Looks like I'm pulling the trigger on the Sonnax slip yoke. Talked to the tech and confirmed it will fit. They don't sell directly and pointed me to Summit so that's where to buy it from.

    I should have the Sonnax yoke by Friday. I'll post-up pics and details on a new thread.

    Cool, I've been holding off as I'm building a huge order with engine parts I need too so I can save on shipping.

    Malcolm, did you end up using your stock bellhousing or going with the Quicktime one? Did you have to modify the transmission crossmember or use a modular one?

    I can confirm that the sonnex one works just fine. AED just did a T56 Mag swap on my buddies 04 and I ordered that yoke and it's just fine. Also reused the stock bellhousing.

    Awesome. How much did you have to get the driveshaft shortened?

    Something I never read or heard anyone mention was clearance issues with the clutch fork when going to the T56 Magnum. The main problem is having an RXT twin disk is thicker than stock. Requires you have an aftermarket shorter pivot ball. However once installing the Magnum it seems clearance is reduced even more. I think it's the webbing on the transmission. I don't have my stock transmission to compare directly though.

    I cut my shorter pivot ball down to the minimal possible size. It's so tight up agains the case you can barely get the clutch fork on it because the springs behind that hold the clutch fork on barely have any space at all. Even in this configuration the clutch fork is compressed up agains the transmission and the throw out bearing is still compressed solid against the clutch fork fingers.

    I was forced to grind some small reliefs into the clutch fork to get around the webbing in the transmission for clearance.

    I don't have a magnum but I remember reading or seeing an install that mentioned cutting some of the webbing on the transmission to clear the clutch fork.

    edit, it is in the tech article in Muscle Mustangs and Fast Fords June 2014 issue. It is when you have a magnum with a twin disk clutch.

    Ah cool. Yeah that's basically exactly what I have. I opted to cut the clutch fork instead of the transmission since it's cheap and easy to replace vs the transmission.

    If it was me I would opt for that as well as long the clutch fork is still strong enough to do what it needs to.

    Yeah it worried me a little too but you can see in the pic above not much came out. I think it'll be just fine.
