Looks like a light duty 5sp box from an XE or XF Falcon.

Yeah it's definatley the light duty 5 speed, it was found behind 3.3L XE's and XF's, and is quite similar to what was found in Sigmas and Bluebirds. It's quite weak and you don't want it.

Yep, another vote for the s**t 5spd (based on the single rail)
Very weak from what I have heard.
Only available for the 3.3 because the stock 4.1 would break it.

It will only bolt to crossflows, it's not gonna work with a 4L unless you get a custom bellhousing, but a 4.1 Crossflow will shred it pretty quick.

sounds like that s**t 5-speed behind 4cyl and 173-powered VH Commos... someone said bolting that behind a 202 will make it last a week... whats the point? lol

Hi thanks everyone :P just got a box today out of an xh .
So new conversion will start in a few weeks and the 4l will come out of my mustang and go into my new daily BMW 735i 1989. I can't stand the gutless 3.4L six that it has . Can't wait:)
