New gearbox.. and Mods

Hey guys,

Im thinking about purchasing a new gearbox for my EF I6, And was wondering how much one of these would cost from a wreckers and what to look for. Also what modifications can be done to them to withstand a flogging? I am also looking into a stall convertor because I am currently in the middle at re-building an I6T.. Comments and suggestions will be appreciated.

Cheers,
Rob

Well I usually sell EA-ED manual kits installed for $1500 s/h or $1800 rebuilt.
I understand they're good for 250-300 fwkw.

Re: New gearbox.. and Mods

it'd be better of getting a rebuilt one though right?

I would if I were you :)
Good luck finding an EF or EL box though at any price!
