Harmonic Resonance.

Highly doubt it'll matter too much, yet Ford installed them for a reason.

chances are you'll have it, just hadn't noticed.

and do i need a tailshaft


ive been told recently that the AU t5 is different from the E series one, in two main ways. the AU use tremec t5, and e series use borg warner t5s. The au tremec is also 40mm longer than a BW, and the shifter is slightly back further.

In an AU you pretty much need an au gearbox im afraid. looking at the same thing myself.

You can use either an AU T5 or use the BA T5 and convert to hydraulic clutch, but personally, i would use a T56

The $$$$ aren't too bad, in an AU, modify pedal box to fit BA pedal, put T56 in using BA flywheel, use T3 manual tailshaft, make speedo work, done
