Hey Phill,

Was thinking after today, what computer went into this? I was thinking that because it doesn't have a 5L bell housing and T5, then maybe it doesn't have a 5L manual ECU? Maybe it does? Just got me thinking :D

Ash


yeah was thinking the same last Friday arvo so popped the kick panel off and it's the xr8 computer in there so no worries there....

starter is on the passenger side mark and clutch cable on the drivers side.It's a 6 cyl box for sure and the shifter nearly hits the consul in 1,3,5...

Interesting Ea there mate! 5 spd V8 boxes are not the easiest of things to come by, so the setup you have doesn't surprise me. I think I'd rather go that way than a v8 auto.

Cheers

Its great set up with a short first gear instead the long v8 first,just not sure how much it will take to brake it down the quarter though...

I noticed that 1st seemed a lot longer in my Xr8 compared to my Ghia, the 8 would be interesting with a shorter 1st, but not too short, because if you have lots of power & short 1st gear, all you will get it tyre smoke lol.

Cheers

Extractors & thermo's are a great start for more power. Probably next cheap power mod is under drives. My Xr8 has extractors & big exhaust on it. No thermo fans yet, will probably convert it once it's on the road. My g/f's red Xr8 has thermo's, but were damaged by the accident, i will replace them when it's time to get it on the road. They do make a good improvement.

Cheers

A 3.45 diff would be a bit of a waste if it wasn't a lsd. My wagon used to spin too easy on a 3.27 single spinner. Second and third were the best though, geez I miss that box sometimes, very jealous hehehe.
