Stop hijacking my thread with that "Did this and my car launches like shit out of a shovel" crap. I don't give a crap about how well you launch car with 3.7 or 3.9's You can change your final drive ratio until your blue in the face but if your gearbox gearsets are up the shit, it doesnt matter. There are so many differnent gearsets in the t-56 range of boxes. Dont be stupid enough to suggest that it was a case of "Pull it out of a commodore and chuck it in a Falcon" as previously posted.

For those that have driven the T56 in the XR.

What is the 0-100 shift like. what I mean is what speed are you doing when you have to shift into 3rd.

I heard that the 0-100km times on the T5 suffered because you had to shift into 3rd for 100km there fore affecting 0-100 times

Cheers

Umm redline in second is around 110km/h indicated so more like 105kmh on a correvit. So for a manual xr8 sedan i am predicting 5.9-6.1 to 100km/h. As for the qtr, well this is where the 6 speed is gonna kick arse, second to third in the TR-3650 is pure shyte, this thing has surely got an extra 4 tenths in it, no doubt whatsover. Throttle response is improved as well so serioulsly i am expecting a high 13's in a standard BA XR8 by the amatuer motoring journo's. Give it to XA and i reckon he would crack a 13.3 no worries

Old mate Gadgetman! It's been a while!

Will be interesting to try the T56 in both camps latest trim to see all the differences. Hows the pickup point compare to the 3650 arrangement? Sounds like 2-3 is a big improvement!

Great to see a 6 speed box as a factory fit - better ratios, better acceleration, and better economy. Who would WANT a 5 speed box given the choice!!!!

Gday sparkie. Long time mate. The new six speed doesnt feel as notchy as the 3650 and it doesnt feel as loose as a goose (commodore version) The gearbox has a very direct shift feel espcially when downchaging from 5th to 3rd. You will really enjoy it. I am not hyping this thing up for the sake of it. It is the only significant upgrade in BA MK2 and it is a beauty. Economy?? Couldnt tell cause the car only had 3000km or so on the clock and they are generally very tight and rich at that stage. I would expect it to drop perhaps half a litre as opposed to a series 1. Either way, Ford are on to a winner. Hopefully SOON, there will be a 6 speed auto to add to the fleet or am i just dreaming!!
