    Saw a 5-speed LS in the junkyard. Are they worth anything as a spare or to convert another car to stick? Isn't it the same as in a Mustang?

    LS 5-speed is also used in the Jaguar S-Type. I'm not sure but I dont think it is used in any mustangs.

    Not sure if it's a one piece case... or uses a separate bell housing. If the former... about the only other thing it will bolt up to... is a Jaguar.

    It's a custom bell housing that is part of the transmission body. Good find!

    The 5r55_ series has a lot of use in other models, but unfortunately even a V6 LS trans won't fit a V8 due to the bell housing being unique to the engine type

    general fyi, the gen also has to be matched. The LS has 4 different autos, 2 engines x 2 gens

    I assumed he was talking about the manual 5 speed transmission... (It was only on the 1st gen V6.)
