Theres 2 mobs I know of on Ebay - The first is more expensive than the second but have a look at these:

http://cgi.ebay.com.au/Ford-Falcon-EA-E ... 4ced1914de

This second one is sold on an exchange basis, meaning you forfeit your old gearbox and recieve the recon unit. It looks as though you would need to keep your bellhousing though:

http://cgi.ebay.com.au/FORD-6CYL-T5-SUI ... 5640ce963d

Hope that helps

DO NOT go near status gearboxs.... there work is crap.... and they will not live up to there warranty at all.

ive had one from there and then they swaped it when i lost 1st after telling me they would rebuild it.

yeah i have seen the two on ebay and was considering the second seller and ausedwagon has confirmed what i was already thinking about the first one, thanks mate :D

might end up going through malwood, at least if anything goes wrong id have a better chance of making a warranty claim.

thanks guys.
