      Thought it might have getrag due to hydraulic clutch..if t5 find what it is out of sell befrore you pop 3rd out the case.

      Buy ls1 do speed rebuild + cam/springs yourself...who cares if it pops grab another as spare lol.
      Dogsballs could point you in right direction for engines etc

      Still got that muncie/t10 thing or has to be 6 speed?
      an easy fix is get a mate to drive in front of you at 60 then 80 then 100 and mark in on your speedo with some liquid paper.

        I still have the 4 speed T10, it would be a lot lighter than a 6 speed. I could use it, but like the idea of a modern 6 speed without the linkages.

        True, the LS1's are cheap and plentiful. But I want to finish races. If I get an LS1, I would need to get it rebuilt half decently. I will pay attention to the oil supply as that seems to be the killer. So good baffled sump and accusump. Unless I can get some dry sump at a reasonable price, but doubt the budget will stretch that far.

            Holmart still got one for 7k also 2 other joints on ebay all in Vic.

            If you want NSW arse reaming try Eagle Autoparts.


            Sounds like whether 2nd hand ls1 or crate engine you're still going to pull it apart for mods.

              Group A had 6 spd so if budget conscious go LS1 & stock 6spd.

              A decent LS1 with cam and heads will easily go north of 300rwkws - more than enough in a VN to be competitive....

                Around 300 is what I am after. LS1 with a rebuild might be the go. But if it's not much more to go 6.0l then I would consider it. Depends what the LS1 ends up costing.

                  Ls1 is pushing it though. 6.0 or 6.2 rectangle heads will do jt easy and room to upgrade

                      Loosely quoting TK the cathedral port heads have a more usable torque band so they are better on a circuit track.

                        L98 with the right cam and heads will go close to 350rwkw. How fast do you want to go ?

                        Me personally i'd save a few extra bucks and go dry sumped L98. But that's just me....

                            I sent off an email asking for a price on dry sump to an American company. They have not replied. What is the cost roughly?
                            There is a pump and tank on gumtree for $800.

                              HPW have 6.0l motors with box and loom for under $5000. Might be the go.

                                We've run a crate l98 with cam, springs, pushrods and a home brew 4 stage dry sump for 4 years. 310kw at the rears. Never touched a rod bolt, pulled the intake or a head.

                                Can't recommend one highly enough for cheap fasts.

                                We also run a Jerico which is great if you can get over your linkage fears. Keep the cam sensible and you won't run out of power between gears.
