Hi, can someone tell me if there is a difference in T5 gearboxs 6cyl and 8cyl. I want to put one in XE falcon with 351 windsor that puts out 400 bhp at the rear wheels. car is used for track days.

Input shaft is a different length. V8 is longer.
A six cylinder T5 can be fitted using a single rail bellhousing after some slight machining and redrilling.
How long a T5 behind 400HP on the track is going to last is anyone guess.

Based on that fact my Mum is the best around!

i would say you wanna go a c4 upwards..While the T5 is "bullet proof" thtas only rated against a max of 187kw... 400 HP is a little more?

T5 wouldn't last that long with regular track work, would be better off with a T56.
