What's your next move, Celica box, rx8 box, MX5 box ... I'm looking at a zf or getrag box from a BMW, cheap and Bullet proof ..

i found another T9 but in working order and ready to go

i would love an Mx5 but been told Australian versions are not strong

anything else would require fair bit of work to tunnel and bellhousing

An MX5 box will be stronger than a type 9 , MX5 has a 2.0 duratec and I've seen turbo versions with over 400bhp on stock gearbox.
Type 9 is a simple install tho, keeps things mostly Ford, lol, remember to use a Cortina TE Speedo cable as the drive is further back..
