The manual is your best bet. My only problem is the clutch.
But the ZF is a fantastic box. Im not sure what the guys are doing with em but I know 300rwkw isnt a problem for it.

few blokes have smashed out a 10 on the stock box, 400++rwkw.
But they've all eventually needed a rebuild.
They were popping input shafts but apparently later boxes now use a heat treated input shaft.
Tailshaft is the weak link.

ZF will piss in 300rwkw though.

NFI, but thats only a big power issue from what i've seen/read.
tailshaft is probably the bigger problem, kyle/6boost managed to pop one in his stock F6 Tornado just stalling it up on the street (i stopped trying it after i heard that :lol:)
and i've seen 2 bust tailshafts at calder, but they were both low11/high10 cars.

theres a C*** on fordxr6turbo.com over in WA who knows his s**t with these transmissions, if you do a search over there on ZFs hes got some pretty good posts.
i think he's been doing something to strengthen them too, but f**k if i know what.
nizpro are sending their ZFs over west to get rebuilt though so he must know what the dealio is.
