Ride: elxr6 turbo/te cortina 302w

Location: sydney
NSW, Australia

took my elxr6 turbo out for a well earned run today and was in the mood to give it a bit.now my car runs 250-280rwkw and after a couple of foot fulls my t5 slushy is rather hard to get in 1st 2nd and 3rd?? im running a good clutch that handles the power but now it feels like ive bent something not sure?? my t5 when i bought car was sloppy at the best of times.but now its rather a pain in the a*** to get in a gear?? so my dillema is this i like my manuals but im getting serious soon and building a big power engine.now i know the t5 will die a quick death with over 300rwkw. so im thinking i might have to go auto?? as i dont want to spend thousands on a gearbox as its for a killer motor.i have a c4 out of my v8 cortina i have thats built to take 500hp.so im after any thoughts on the c4 and has anyone on fordmods got a c4 behind there 4.0????

T5 will die with less than 200rwkw.

Yes, C4 has been attached to a 4.0.

There is a post with one somewhere possibly a c6 or FMX aswell?
