G'day guys.

Well my gearbox is getting worse. Had the blower on for a month now, gotten to the stage where alot of power will go lost.

Just what are the Options on a Gearbox to suit an EF XR8.

I have been quoted near on $5000 for a rebuilt and beefed up BTR gear box with a small stall in it, then requires shift kit and hi stall module.

What other options are there?

-Mal Wood t56 conversion
-Tremec TKO 600 conversion
-C4 (although I'll miss the 4th)

My car is a 95 Xr8 auto, have just put a vortech blower on, 307rwhp. At the moment thats all the power I will need, though will look at potentially 400 rwhp, maybe a tad more (when the motor goes).

I would prefer to keep the auto as I like leaving off the line with power, but will be open to options as I dont want to have to go down this path later down the track.

Also Heard of an AOD box, is this an option?

Any light shed would be much appreciated.
