Hello guys i have been thinking over a couple of weeks about a conversion to take out my current engine, transmission and diff and swap it all over with a BF or FG xr6 turbo running gear i need some info to back up my theory and would this be quite a easy conversion and also what would be the costs involved i have seen a xr6 turbo engine and ZF transmission sell for around 7.5k on ebay at one point. If i was to do this i would change the running gear everything from engine to diff. I need some opinions as to which shops would do these types of conversions in Melbourne south eastern preferably.

Thnx Tim.

There have been countless threads on the topic.
Assuming you have a 4sp auto in the BA, your biggest issue is changing wiring looms to run the ZF box!
Installing motor and box is straight forward.
Please try searching.
