Hi guys,

are the 5sps from XD-EF workable in EA-Ed series? I know the starters are the same, but what about the rest.. would it work, would I need different tailshaft etc?

Theres 2 types of XF 5 speeds.

Standard Borg Warner and the T5.

Bell housings are obviously different also.

The " Light Duty " 5sp XF box is crap and they are small.
The BW T5 in the XF is exactly the same as the EA T5 box.
