I know That I could use a manual trans from a series3 XK-E
I’ve made several T5 conversions myself (Cheap but since the most
HP a T5 is rated for is 350 it’s marginal).
The T5’s were also designed for a lighter weight car
I’ve heard it’s possible to simply bolt a Getrag 5 speed from the
6 cylinder up to the V12 engine?
Providing you have the right bell housing then yes, but I’m not too sure that, that Getrag is going to be strong enough for your purposes. You’ll probably end up breaking it.
How much interchanges? Flywheel? driveshaft? Clutch/brake pedal
Not to sure about the flywheel, but the driveshaft length will change. I have one but I’m not in a position to measure it. You can use the pedal box assembly from the six cylinder, though. I haven’t done it, but I can see how the existing pedal box could be modified to accept an additional pedal. The mounting of the hydraulic reservoir is unique to the pedal box, though.
I’m sure that’s in England option only if it does work. So what
are typical junk yard prices for the parts?
The pedal boxes that I’ve run across have ranged in price between $150-$400
what sort of expense
would shipping be and import duty?
I don’t remember ever paying duty on anything being shipped to the states, but shipping from the UK tends to be on the outlandish side of things.
Hope some of this helps.
