they can be made to fit to ef/els i believ but you need to purchase a custom belhousing from some joint i thnik theyre made by dellow or something. ill have a look for ya later. there will be other problems such as clutch type and that. it would be a lot less hassel to just get a T5 thats designed to go in it.....

I heard they are very good and strong boxes. Most jap cars put these gearboxes on their cars. Think they have good ratios too. Most likely you have to get a custom mounting bracket for it. Also a adapter plate i think its called.
If it in good nick, buy it.

I think the 'some' supra boxes are a bit stronger than the T5.

CRS (castlemaine rod shop) do the bell housings for about $260ish
you'll need a custom spigot bearing (cheap) and also a clutch plate ($100).
also the top part of the box is slightly higher at the shifter than a T5 I think.

would be more of a pain to install into a falcon than the trusty T5.

I bought a few Supra boxes about 2 years ago. they're very common and if sourced you can pick them up for about 250ish even less.

bare in mind the W57 is good and easyish to get with good gears, the W55 is the gay box with a poxy 1st, and the W58 is rare as hell but nearly 30% stronger. (theres a metal sandwich plate on the 58, the others are alloy and hard to Identify.)

I've never broken one behind a 5ltr but then again, I owned a ute.

with those prices krytox mentioned it seems a much better alternative than the slightly dated ea T5.

krytox how much is this (cheap) spigot bearing, and are there any other mods that need to be done as iv only skimmed through some documents a mate sent me on the topic

Im not sure if the same spigot I used in the 5ltr fits the i6 crank.
I recall around $20 for the phosphorous bronze spigot bush from CRS.

not only do you need the bush, theres the x-member, clutch fork, tail shaft yoke, maybe tailshaft shortening, custom speedo sender + gear etc etc.

It's do-able but it'll prolly cost you more.

If it were a XD or something then it might be more simpler as theres more options of gear hole positions too.

I cant really advise personally, as I've only installed supra's into holdens.

as a conversion to suit holden its awesome as the trumatic and aussie were the exact same length as the supra (with b/housing). No tail shaft mods or anything structual required, just off the shelf stuff. T5 is bulkier and requires a larger tunnel, where as the supra is skinny.

and supra's are easier to source and can suit the v8's + 6's

i honestly didnt think all that. makes it seem a little out of reach now. although the supra boxes are somewhat stronger and there are more of them it would be a lot easier if you broke one to replace it with another, as to be honest there isnt a never ending supply of T5's to suit ford 6's
