Creating a BA Mutant....
Okay hows this for an idea. I'm really liking my BA XR6 NA. Its cheap repayments, it performs well (the power to traction levels are stunning compared to other cars in the wet, basically only AWD cars can nail me off the line).
Anyway... the thought is at the moment to get an upgrade. To go from the standard 5speed manual (T5 argh) and non LSD back end to the new and improved 6speed manual (T56) and 3.73 LSD that is likely to be shipped with the F6/GT's.
I'd prefer to see this done by a Ford Dealership so it could be fully worked with ECU so the Diff and gearbox ratios could be modified so that the speedo is still accurate. Anyone any ideas about this? How about just getting the diff rebuilt from standard to 3.73 LSD. thats likely to be cheaper (and better?).

BA XR6 - December 2002 ~ Soon to disappear if Ford CRC can't fix it....
45,000km service coming up - and i'll be asking for a sizable list of fixes:
* Gearbox (3rd time)
* Steering click (5th time)
* Brake Shudder (2nd time, and has the applied "Fix")
