thank god!!!

EA 3.9 cam and exhaust and other goodys she finally killed the 4 spd
now with fitting my newly acquired EA 5 speed manual!

Any idea what sort of performance benefits i should expect?

As an auto i was givin spud69's EL XR6 a good run for its money and that is admittedly a good example of an xr6. and it aint stock.

Oh and im runnin 3.45 diff should be a very short 1st gear ay?



EB XR6 project almost complete!

Soon on road with pics!

Im running an EA T5 with a 3.45.. it wasn 't short before, and then I got an RPD stage3 lol...

Its not too bad, picks up well, I dunno about performance gains, but the gearing is definately alot better than the autos.

Cheers, and enjoy




Cheap, fast and reliable.. choose 2.

gearing is gd as u have shorter gears to play with (5 vs 4) good short 1st gear for the strip n good tall 5th gear for economy on the freeway... not to mention u will have a clutch.. so u pick ur launch rpm basically... so u can "launch like miss daisy at 1000rpm or you can "launch at 4000rpm track attack" :wink:
