you're gonna have to change heaps won't you... as the speedo will be alll f**k up and such.
either way, you can convert a supra 6 speed box to fit into the falcon, probably cheaper.

yeah well a supra turbo 6 speed is only around 2500-3000. and from what that guy said the t56 will be around twice this.

does anyone know if you can put the auto 6 from a xr6t into the ef???

sorry dude i don't know much about the gearboxes, but i would assume the altezza and supra to have similar gearboxes.
there is someone on here, xr8chic i think, that has a 6 speed in her xr8... send her a pm and she might be able to give you some advice.
