Re: new 6 speed in xr6t

Mal Wood (07 4661 3548) has already done the Tremec 6 speed conversion in an AU. I think it was written up in Performance Ford a while back. I believe it required some work around the exhausts and some changes to the shifter

According to this months Wheels - the Ford box will have a set of ratios similar to the Cobra R and won't be as tall in 6th as the box fitted to the Commodores

Re: new 6 speed in xr6t

Mal Wood also does the Tremec 6 speed conversion in XR6T's as well.

You are looking at over $8000 but from the people that I know who have done it, they all say it's worth the money.

Then again, what do you want 6 gears for? It's bad enough getting through 5!

IMO only trucks need 6 gears.

Re: new 6 speed in xr6t

LOL, you probably have the roads and speed limits to get to use it.

In Sydney, I'm lucky to get out of 3rd.

My parents only use the 6th in their 200sx when they hit the freeway to visit me.
