is it possible to fit a Tremec 3650 5 speed Gearbox, from a BA Falcon V8 to an Au S2 straight 6 4.0L? if not would a ba 5 speed from a 4.0L fit straight up 2 the AU?

BA V8 5 speeds are the tremec 3650 box, but i suspect you will be hard pressed to find a bellhousing to suit as 6 cyl 5 speed ba's are still the T5

^and then wouldn't you need to get it engineered because it wasn't a factory option?

Ba TR3550 will not fit anything but the BA V8's due to integrated bellhousing design. BA T5 as found in the 6cyl cars should fit, i think, but will need hydraulic clutch conversion. You can buy a T5 for eseries with the BA T5 bits in it (T5 z spec) but they still arent a terribly tough gearbox.

BA spec yes, although the AU 5.6L stroker guys have a similar box and do brake them with a bit of abuse. If you buy one from Tremec though they are a pretty strong box

Either way, better than a T5

mmm...i dont suppose there's anyway to get around the integrated bellhousing? I'm thinking probably not without engineers approval anyway

I think Dellows may have an ADR approved bellhousing adaption.. if they don't.. nobody does, not ADR approved anyway.
May be better off getting a supra turbo 5 speed box and bellhousing.. for the $$ you are looking at spending this would be a more cost effective option.
