Gday,
i cant seem to find much out about this we are looking at converting my xh v8 ute to a manual and cant find a v8 t5 anywhere i can get my hands on a t5 for a good price out of an xr6 will this t5 work with the v8?? if not whats the differences between the xr6 t5 and a v8 t5? if so what will be required to make it all work properly? will i need a manual computer or can i use a j3 chip?

T5
bellhousing
flywheel
clutch
clutch cable
pedal box

for a layman ... like me .... yes [bellhousing won't, input shaft won't & no idea re flywheel]


think the 6/8 ratios are differant as well, someone will mention what tho & unsure re cable length. i have EA-ED, EF-EL as well as AU cables and there are differant lengths for the 6 depending on model..

EA to EL .. yes

AU to FG ... no


so remember the AU & up gearbox is roughly 2 inches longer in length than the e series box.

my understanding is longer.

to see this yourself, measure the gearboxes from output end to bellhousing engine mounts.
