BA T5 into ED XR6?

anyone got any idea if a BA T5 gearbox will fit easily into an ED XR6?

If not directly, what sort of modifications would have to be done to get it to fit/work?


Falcon Killer (if you believe what Ford Service Departments have to say about me)
AU II XR6 - October 2001 ~ December 2002 - RIP
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")
* etc...

Re: BA T5 into ED XR6?

Box will be two inches too long, has no speedo system, and has a semi integral bellhousing to suit hydraulic only. Mount is different, input shaft has a different spline and is longer. Why?

If you're not driving a manual you're really just steering.

Re: BA T5 into ED XR6?

nothing stopping you putting T5Z (xr6t/auV8) internals into an older T5.

Ive been described as a vault of usless random knowledge.

Ill take it as a complement i think.............

Re: BA T5 into ED XR6?

What sort of ratios does the T5Zs have. In fact it would be good to compile a list of ratios for ford boxs

Eg.
Top loader WR
1st 2.78:1
2nd 1.98:1
3rd 1.34:1
4th 1.00:1
Top loader CR
1st 2.32:1
2nd 1.67:1?
3rd 1.29:1
4th 1.00:1
T-10 (had many ratios avaliable but this was the most common)
1st 2.64:1
2nd 1.57:1
3rd 1.23:1
4 1.00:1
Doug Nash 4+1
1st 3.27:1
2nd 2.64:1?
3rd 1.57:1
4th 1.23:1
5th 1.00:1

Yes, on a tapered roller mainshaft.
