    just what the title says will this fit a 1991 ford escort gt ..the model number for this transmission is mtx5, the transmission that i know will fit from a mazda protégé is a mtx5a which bolts to the same 1.8 liter dohc engine that is in the escort gt ..if it will fit whats the difference between the two?
    is one weaker than the other or is the gear ratios different?
    please let me know
    Thanks ,Dave

    The 1.8l dohc BP engine in the 91-96 escort gt has a g5m transmission.
    Which uses the same dohc BP that's in a 91-94 mazda protege.
    The 1.5/6 b6 engine in the 95-98 protege uses a f- series transmission which is weaker and I believe different spline count.
