Hey guys my manual T5 is jumping out of 5th so what are my options?

Rebuild gear box and over drive 5th? How much and how long/ hard of a job is it?
Get a new T5?
Or can a B series 6 speed be fitted or are the bellhousings all wrong- need different input shaft, clutch, flywheel etc
Or a Mal woods T56 or 6 speed?

What are the costs and big of a job each are?

Any help or suggestions would be great

Is your T5 noisy?

They jump out of gear because of wear in the selector, you'd have to pull it apart to know what bits are worn.

Do they make a T56 bellhousing for the V8? you would also need a tailshaft made to suit the 31 spline output shaft on the gearbox.

1, 2, 3 are normal 4th is a little noisey and vibrates a bit, 5th seems ok but will pop out randomly?
