Do a search mate, a few people have done it into E-Series ...mainly on Turbo set-ups.

Mal Wood do full T56 kits, you can also use a T56 out of a Commodore that has a particular part number.

Though I wonder why you'd really want to do it at this point if you're still N/A..

well ive got a second xr6 engine and im just gonna use the block out of it and turbo that but didn't know what to do to the gear box so when that engine goes in with the turbo set up on it ill be putting a 6 speed in it. but thanks for the help mate. I might have some more questions further on down the track like best size dump pipe and exhaust and where I can get a big intercooler and where to run the pipes for it and all the usual stuff like that haha

Your best bet is to hop on Perth E-series or Boosted Falcon ...plenty of info to be had from both those sites mate :wink:

I've given you at least 2 sites you should be looking at for info ...no-one is going to spoon-feed you everything you need to know mate.

SEARCH & RESEARCH before you go asking the same questions that have already been asked a zillion times.
