I have an EB XR6 with the factory T5 manual gearbox and was wondering how these boxes handle forced induction?

I have heard that the BA XR6T also has the T5 gearbox in them
Can anyone inform me if they are the same spec boxes as in the EB's or did they change few things

Someone also told me that it might be possible to install the 5 speed out of the BA XR8's into my car
If someone could shed some light on this it would be greatly appreciated as these boxes would be the best as they can easily handle the extra ponies and stress associated with a forced induction system

the XR6T box is the Z-spec box and is not realy that much stronger.



the options for a stronger bax are.

T56 for $8500 fitted from mal wood.
TKO for around the same price.

or G-force transmissions gear set rated too 600hp for $1500 AUD plus shipping from the states.
then have your box rebuilt with thier parts.
have the parts shiped in seperate boxes of value less then $1000 and there is no import tax.

or G-force will sell you a built box from %100 new parts for $2700 AUD.

you also have a choice of ratios
