not sure but there are only 4 bolts holding the bellhousing to the gearbox on a type9. any reason why you can't use a Carlton/Senator gearbox?

There's a few people who do Family 2 to Type 9 adaptors; can't remember who off the top of my head, but it shouldn't be too difficult to get.

Flipping hell that is expensive, but the prices some of the 16V conversion parts are going for, u'd proberbly be better going that way, think how many type 9 replacement boxes u could buy for the price of a Manta.

So could be woth it in the long run, or u could make one yourself!
