XR gearbox switching

would anybody be able to tell me if you can go into Ford and get your XR6/XR6 Turbo gearbox swapped for an XR8 box? can it be as simple as that or do other changes need to be made in order to do this?
and also what is the price difference between the two gearboxes?
thanx alot guys all advice is appreciated

Re: XR gearbox switching

Are we talking slusher or manual? The manual can not be done, end of story. (integral B/H design, box way too long.)
