Any EB-EL V8 Auto will be able to be used easily. With the AU Auto, at least your tailshaft will need to be shortened

ok i am in knda the same position mine is a 6 and well its donr the head and i have also been caught up in this petrol thingy and its cheaper for me to get a AU XR6motor than it is to get mine sent off and fixed well all the fiddly stuff i cant be asz. so i have got a price for the AUXR6motor just wondering as i have the motor will the au gearbox fit in the tunnel and also will i be able to hook up the speedo cable with the AU trans i know i will have to get the tailshaft shorttened but was thinking about it? so what do you think??? get the gearbox as well or just leave it???

All V8 BTR autos are the same length

That AU trans will fit straight in your EB & your original EB tailshaft will fit.

With the AU adaptive shift thats on some models, It is controlled by the extra circuitary in the T-Bar itself. When it is placed in the adaptive shift mode, It relays the message to the computer for the performance shifts - The transmissions are the same internally(Mechanicals & wiring) & it will bolt straight up.
