    Mate I literally shut my garage & walked away from this car a couple of months ago because I couldn’t be bothered with it. If only I knew a bash with a hammer would solve it [emoji849] engine mounts bolted up & she slotted into place nicely!!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hey mate, the motor & box came complete & running I haven’t checked the flywheel but it was running & driving well in a jail bar previously. I bought the windsor & t5 after blowing up my Cleveland, I’ve measured the bell housing on both the c4 & t5 & found the clevo one measures 160mm face to face & t5 180mm. The gear stick just fits up through the tunnel but hits the back of the hole while selecting 2nd & 4th but I can just cut the hole a little further back to fix that. I was thinking I could slot the holes in the engine mounts & base plates to move the engine slightly forward but does anyone think that could compromise the mounts by not having the same amount of meat at the front? The back of the tunnel seems pretty solid but I will give it a bash tonight & see how much space I can create. I’m assuming I’ll need decent clearance between the back of the box & the tunnel to stop vibration problems. Cheers guys I appreciate any advice as I’ve been going round in circles on google & coming up empty Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Heya guys I’m currently putting a t5 in behind my 351w in my xf & upon jacking the box up into place I found it was too long to sit nicely up in the tunnel! I was told that because it’s a v8 t5 the Input shaft is 20 mm longer? The gearbox cross member isn’t a problem I can just modify that to fit but I’m thinking of slotting the engine mounts 5mm or so & taking the angle grinder to the back of the tunnel to get the clearance...does anyone have any experience with this?
