Cheers

ah fantastic mine is an NC fairlane but you are saying the electronics didnt change throughout the series and everything will bolt up the same?

what sort of condition is the one you have in? how many ks on the car it came out of? also where are you located?

Cheers mate

EB-EL V8 Trans are interchangable.

Can't use a 6cyl one on a V8.

just out of interest why is that other than the bellhousing?

does the EF/EL ones have the adaptive shift?

will make it easy if they are interchangable though, there arnt any differences between the fairlane ones and the sedan ones i imagine?

Cheers guys

input shaft length is different.
i don't even think the torque converters are interchangable.

Torque converteres are different. Ratios are different. Not worth the effert. Chase downa 5.0 one and all will be sweet.
Or get yours freshened. Shouldnt be any more than 1k to freshen it

BTR's fitted to all E and A series, both I6 and V8 had the same gears ratios.

True, but not the same gear set I dont think - was looking at the specs for them the other days somewhere.

Also lots different clutches etc

the ecu in 6 cylinders are different to v8s

the bell housing is different, the input shaft if different and the tourque convertor is different

its alot of work putting a 6 cylidner box into a v8

i would just get yours recoed.

or find an already rebuilt one for sale.
