Any idea of the positioning of a shifter from EB-> in comparison to the C6 shifter?

shifter location is the same up to el, au is too far back as from memory there is a structural rib behind the tin hat in xa-xe and fairlaine equivalents, i fitted a t5 into an xd and had to roll the edge of the cutout in the floor under the tin hat and cross member doesn't line up without modification but other than that all was good.
also takes cable clutch so just use xd/xe pedals and fire wall plate

G'day mate, very nice ZH! I have a XB coupe that was a 6 / 4 speed single rail, I purchased a really rusty 351 ZH for its engine a few years ago and so might be able to help with your questions...

The single rail that was behind the 6 stayed there - all i had to buy was the V8 bellhousing, flywheel and fork - cost me $200 from a wreckers. These bits are common to 302 and 351 clevo's.

It was actually a really easy, did it by myself in the back shed type deal...I"d replaced the clutch 6 months earlier behind the 6, so just bolted that up to the V8 flywheel. No issues, I measured the depth of the clutch into the bell and a bunch of other dimensions between the 6 and the V8 expecting there to be some huge difference , but everything was the same - bolted it all together and it all worked fine...

My gearbox was always a bit dodgy and noisy, and after a year it got noisy in 3rd so I replaced it to be on the safe side - went for a single rail from an XF, $150 and had an electronic speedo output so I was able to set up a speedo - never actually had one before that :roll: :oops:

My diff is the standard 6 / 302 diff, 2:92 ratio, and it is a huge amount of fun to drive, and on gas, really economical but still able to boogie off the traffic lights...
