Re: Need Help with XA fairmont hardtop
Theres not many stong 5 or 6spds that'll hold the torque of a 351 or fit into the tunnel of a X series Falcon. I'd suggest finding a box s/h or fixing your toploader. The TKO is good but depending on your engine and purpose it isn't a good box if you plan to drag race. When looking @ box's you want to find out the max load in ftlbs you can put on 1st and 2nd. This way you can determine whether you'll break it.
I personally wouldn't remove a toploader. They ain't stupidly strong but hell they're a lot better than most 5 and 6spds. A hell of a lot cheaper too.
