Ask Dellow engineering or visit their website, there are a few models of Supra box, not all of them are the best for a Falcon. Figure out which model you need and then start ringing around or visiting websites,

Surely one from that shire knows CRS.

I've done a few transplants including W58 Supra boxes in 308's.

CRS bell housing are around $220 (well a few years ago)

My money goes to them rather than dellow.


Also It'll be easier to source a T5 than a Toyota conversion, you'll need tailshaft mods, mounts/cross members speedo corrector etc.

Yes I think the w58 box is a better choice than a Borg, but you'll save $ with oem, stuff.

in my opinion the t5 should be as strong as a supra box?

i will say one thing about the toyota supra/celica boxes is there is quite a few different ratios in them..
unless he is looking for the supra 5 speed box where 5th ratio is a 1 to 1

meh, Supra Boxes they're great!.

w55 = 0.850 *easy to get*
w57 = 0.861 *harder to get*
w58 = 0.783 *ever harder*
R154 = 0.753 *damn expensive*
V160 has a 1:1 5th gear and a 6th gear od at 0.793 *woah, even more*

w58 is the pick of the bunch with a Steel sandwich plate and good ratios.

Supra boxes I think are better engineered and generally have less torque run through them.

I prefer them, as they have more options of shifter length and easily obtainable.

I just hate the input shaft, tiny bloody pilot.

I've had 2 w57's 1 w58 both types went through hell, and I wasn't shy to pump a v8 through them.

I still don't like powering up the T5 with a i6.
I just dont feel right!


too much work for a falcon.

T5, soo much easier and easy to rebuild.
