anything is possible with time and money. It can be done, but at great expense.

If you're going to go to the trouble to put a ZF in with the wiring and whatnot, you might as well just put in a whole BF wiring harness and a barra i6

i dont believe it would be worth the trouble, E series has a different bellhousing pattern to AU/BA/FG 6's (bottom bolts) and the ZF 6 speed has half its computer in the PCM and the other half internally, so as has been suggested the easiest way is to put both the DOHC engine and the 6 speed in at the same time as it would only be slightly harder to do both.

I know that its going to go into an e series but they recon that fitting a zf6 into a ba 4 speed will cost around 20k and alot of stuffing around for the ba

What does a zf retail for?

Easiest way would be with BA engine, but you would want to be paying a lot less than that.

Any B series engine, but obviously a later ecu though. Forgot it was the 6 speed manual not auto that was BA2.

yer i had to check myself.

easier to run the later engine though so because there are differences.not sure of them all but i know theres an extra oxygen sensor maybe knock sensor. and the bf is a better engine apart from them removing the vct solenoid filters, which has yet to be proven a problem. i have to say that i own one lol
