XR6 and XR6T gearbox??
Hi, I have some for you guys questions:
1) Is the 5 speed in my BA XR6, the same as the 5 speed in the
2) A lot of people have mentioned the 5 speed in the turbo may not stand up to mods, and gave it a max torque rating (cant remember what this is). But im interested to know how does the auto go in the XR6T. All the reviews ive read say that the auto XR6T is a faster car than the manual, due to the auto keeping the car on boost. Also will the auto gearbox in the XR6T handle more power than the manual gearbox??? (as dont normally autos handle more power??). If so the auto XR6T looks tempting to me.
3) sorry off topic, but my last question is - do the alloys on the XRs come with lock nuts?? My XR6 has standard 17s, (and had no lock nuts), so i went and bought some for $30 from autobarn and put them on. But the other day i was reading my owners manual, and it says to look in the glovebox for the locknut key to remove your wheels when you have a flat tyre. WTF!! No key in my glovebox!!!
