Everything is different, spline, input shaft length, helix angle on the gears, everything.
6 boxes are nothing like the stronger V8 box.

As noted above The V8 and I6 input shafts are different lengths making it uneconomic to do a conversion in that direction unless you can get hold of a donar box cheap.

EL 6 cylinder mounts, with the V8 brackets on them. when i looked at my xr8 while i had my 6 cylinder still, they were identical from the mounts down. so just use the ones you have. you just need the mounts to block brackets then the 8 will bolt in
