Ride: EF-XR6/XG-6/XE-V8- project

Hi guys, so in contemplating building my XF barra turbo manual I concidered rebuild of a toploader to suit but in the end I decided to go with a TR6060 as it needs to be as bulletproof as possible-but I'm still curious as to how well a toploader would work in this configuration,CRS make a bellhousing to suit EA on (I'm assuming that means au/ba/bf/fg too) anyway would love to hear from anyone who's gone this route on how it went,power tolerance/reliability etc........
Cheers Johnny.

Ride: BA XR6 Turbo

Location: Jamestown
SA, Australia

i think i remember hearing that the bell-housings were slightly different when they went to the alloy sump to suit the Au BA BF FG, it wasn't a huge difference. all the holes line up on the block but the lowest 2 bolt holes didn't.

This is a out there idea but could maybe get the bell-housing without the bottom holes drilled and add them to suit yourself?

as for how well the toploader could handle it i couldnt tell you
