Does the box have a clutch fork with it? They differ between 6 & 8, and i have a feeling the starter might be on the other side of the bellhousing as well. TBH i have not been under my Xr8 to compare it's T5 with the T5 in my I6 Ghia. Might have to do that this w/e....

Cheers

On a V8, the starter is on the passengers side, ans the clutch cable connects on the drivers side. i6 Clutches are passengers side .
