Not a 100% sure I think the EA bellhousing has a different bolt pattern to EB upwards. More to the point though I wouldn't be puting an EA T5 behind a 5L won't last very long at all. You would be best of trying to find a T5 from a V8 and using the EA pedal box with a bit of reinforcing. I also think that the input shafts are different between the T5's from the 6's and 8's to, someone correct me if im wrong.

i have heard that there is no difference between the 6cyl t5 and the 5l t5 but also told that i have to get a windsor bellhousing, i just was'nt sure if there actualy was a difference in the internals of the box itself, people say that the box should be able to take the strain from the 5L but i would'nt have a f'ing clue!!!!

I've done it. EA T5, dellows EB V8 bellhousing and flywheel, Windsor V8 clutch and cable, lengthened imput shaft. This gearbox has sat behind a not so stock 5.0 for nearly 4 years and still going strong.

does anyone know if the longer imput shaft can be bought over the counter or do i have to get one made up, also can it be done at home in my shed? if anyone has any other handy tips for my manual conversion please let me know!

If you want to lengthen the input shaft at home, you will at the very least, need a lathe. If it is running out, you will snap it in half if it is out on concentric.
