What 6 speed are you looking at?,
If it's a BA/BF it won't fit so ive been told, but could be wrong!!.
I also wanted to put the 6 speed into a ED 5.0L.

The 6 speed will not directly bolt in, a hydraulic clutch has to be used, no T56 bellhousing is capable of a cable clutch, the trans tunnel has to be hacked a little and the console needs to be moved back to allow for the shifter. And a 6 speed will need a custom bellhousing to suit a Windsor, IIRC Mal Wood have these available

They offer better acceleration and economy, and may replace changing the diff ratio. So the cost is not really what it seems. I am thinking 6 spd auto though.

A 5 spd manual involves enough gear changes for me, a six spd sounds like a real chore. I'd skip every second gear. But if it had a quick . . . what do you call that . . . motorbike style shift, that would make it a bit more bearable for me. Sequential, that's it.
