Hey everyone,
A good mate of mine has a Ef xr6 5speed he wants to sell to fund a project, he has kindly offered me to swap the diff, tailshaft and t5 between his and mine, being a eb1.
I know the Box is a straight swap.
I know you have to use the upper trailing arm from the eb on the diff and also swap the brake lines and calipers also you have to modify the handbrake cable. This is what I don't know, in what sense do they mean modify. Longer cable, bend brackets?
If also like to know If the xr tail shaft is better, I heard it's alloy.
And finally I assume we just do the reverse and put it all back in the xr no worries? Thanks
