wow thats a huge difference, so definately going to a t56 will solve my problems for future? or will i still break gears?
how much is a second hand or reco T56?


There's no T56 that will bolt straight up in an E-series. Mal Wood can make you one for about $5K. Gear breakage depends entirely on your driving behaviour.


And you can DIY for less. Custom gearbox crossmember, shortened tailshaft, new yoke, custom speedo pickup/Commodore extention housing (the latter means shifter in stock location) BA clutch pedal, custom fluid lines. $4k depending on how much you do yourself.

Differences - Tailshaft (I did an XT) rear mount, the rest bolts straight up.

In the XT, (which runs a T5, not a TR3550) the yoke is different. The T56 yoke doesn't bolt up to the rubber doughnut in the T5 tailshaft. If you need a T56 yoke, I have one for sale, brand new, never been used. I know the XR6T runs a different tailshaft to the XT. Get a crossmember from Ford, and a gearbox mount. People will say that you have to change the clutch, but that is incorrect, a T5 clutch works with the T56.

i see, but if the t56 yoke doesnt bolt to the rubber doughnut on the t5 tail shaft then what do i need to get to make it bolt up? by me buying a t56 yoke that wont help anything ? or to put it simply, which parts other then a t56 gearbox do i need to convert? from my t5 in ba xr6t
