Different gearbox questions

G'day all.

Just a few questions from me.

Is a six cyl t5 from a ea-ed the same as a v8, other than ofcourse clutches, plates and bellhousing??

Is a ea-ed t5 6cyl box the same as the au 6 cyl?

Also ive been told that they will fit up behind a 302 clevland with proper belhousings ofcourse. So i take it the shafts all match up and would have no probs with tailshafts from xf going in?

Re: Different gearbox questions

The EA/ED six cyl t5 uses the same clutch plate and tailshaft as a single rail or toploader 4 speed. The v8 t5 has a longer input shaft.

Re: Different gearbox questions

I6 boxes have much weaker internals than the V8 ones. How long one lives will depend on diff ratio, engine specs and driver habits.

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