Hey guys just have some questions about the conversion if it has been discussed a 100times that's fine just send me a link but have researched and still have unanswered questions so here we go:

1.is it possible to fit a fg xr6t motor in a xh/e-series if not why is it so hard compared to a ba/f engine I only ask as there are not many ba/f engines with low Kay's under 100xxx km to buy, but I did find a perfect fg motor eBay....

2. I have around 10 grand to put into the build is that enough to cover new gearbox, tailshaft, diff, engine conversion etc or am I over my head hear.

3. Will I have to get it engineered after the build.

4. Is there much modifications to fit a ba 5 speed in my ute.

Thanks

A) You will need to fit a BA/BF sump and oil pick up as the FG is different and will not fit into your K Frame or a BA/BF K Frame for that matter.

2. I have around 10 grand to put into the build is that enough to cover new gearbox, tailshaft, diff, engine conversion etc or am I over my head hear.
Go for it.

3. Will I have to get it engineered after the build.
A) Yes.

4. Is there much modifications to fit a ba 5 speed in my ute.
A) T5 will bolt straight up but won't last long.
