Over here in OZ we have T5 boxes in Holden Commodores and I think some ford falcons..
I used this list .. Borg-Warner T-5 transmission - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Can I use a Holden Commodores T5 ????
They are very easy to get here.
And I am also I bit confused about the slave cylinder issue you said..
What do you mean that the bell housing has no provisions for a throw out or slave?
You may have to "dumb it down" for me..lool
Glad to have you on-board Harvey
