hey..
its not the box length thats different its the input shaft length thats different, so a 6 cyl box cant be used with the factory v8 bellhousing..

but you can use a 6 cyl box if you use an aftermarket dellow bellhousing and a custom length tailshaft..

pm taxi 5l he has a 6 cyl t5 in his 5.0l ea.. he may know the part number for the bellhousing

i just didnt have the time to busy organising going overseas.
so if i get the dellow or crs bell housing the 6cyl will work on the v8 with the 6cyl tail shaft rather than extending the v8 one, like in another post

the v8 and 6 cyl tailshafts are the same..

you may need to lengthen the tailshaft by about 30-40mm because the 6 cyl input shaft is shorter than the v8, meaning the dellow/crs bellhousing will bring the 6 cyl box closer to the engine to make up for the difference in input shaft length, so that will mean that the tail shaft may have to be lengthened to make up the difference...
