Is it possible to use a T5 with a 460?

What type of 5 or 6 speed can be used as a daily driver and not for racing?

The 500 is a wide ratio rated at 500 ft lb , that would scare me behind a 460. the close ratio 600 would be better, it's rarted at 600 ft lb. , but it would still worry me at the rpm these engines make that torque. Probably be ok on the street.

Street driven street tires no traction !

Either the TKO 500 or TKO 600 in a street car daily driver would work fine even a T56 6 speed would be ok

I put a 3550 TKO in a mustang making around 600 ftlbs of torque 5 years ago and it is still in the car working fine.
