Hey,

I was wondering if it would be possible to swap a ZF 6HP26 or even a 6HP32 from a BMW into a Falcon.

The TCM would definitely need to be swapped over from the current car to the new one. It's got a 6HP26 as stock at the moment.

Has anyone done this or have any experience with these transmissions?

Are the bell housings different? Are the torque converters different? Is there any major differences internally?

Thanks, Dylan.

I'm yet to start looking into this. cloning the Mech is simple now, i can swap between jag and Ford 🙂

I would confirm the exploded diagrams as a starting point between both trans.

I'd imagine there's going to be a lot more people who can clone TCM's as soon as they find the old jaguar website & YouTube video showing how it's done.

Yeah I agree, these days the net is more than just porn ..lol..

I was in touch with a Russian developer  Oleg a while ago who created  modules to read the ZF's, gone of the days off reading the MLB flash. The games changing especially with the 30 min turn around tunes from overseas calibrators by purchasing credits.

Next wave Will be interesting with tuning electric powered cars  becoming the norm! I used to race remote control electric RC cars back in the days... looks like they are over grown and road driven now!

Start saying goodbye to fossil fuel, time to convert a falcons to electric!

I still tune carbie cars and have a few my own! If you believe they will be around, yes but the cost to drive these cars, especially high powered and non fuel efficient cars will be enormous in years to come especially with global aiming for zero emissions in 2050 or earlier!, this will force us middle and lower class guys to revert or park them up and take them out, just like wearing a rolex to main events!

Around the world, governments are driving the shift away from fossil fuel cars to electric cars, we all know this and hate them for it at times. (love driving my 351 clevo)..
In 2021, electric car sales doubled from the previous year to ~7 million, which makes up ~10% and climbing rapidly of the market. China is the dominant and always the for front leaders. This can be seen with  USA owes China  ~990 billion dollars and climbing.. Why? To keep the US dollar pegged with the Yuan china currency and being the leaders; innovators along with controlling currency and the rest of the things they control!

Just curious how did you guys go with 98 hitting $2.65 per ltr..? i started driving the Toyo Corolla 1.8.

Tried e85 in the falcon that went from 1.85 to 2.20 and burning efficiency per km is 30% more than pump. And that's 2022, lets see in years to come..!!

@ Whiteford I'm looking for laborer's at my job site, I'll hire you to lay some flooring down and rubbish removal ..lol.. 🙂 

 Lets be honest Dubai trending to tourism and housing middle eastern crime boss's as a safe haven, the crude oil will be a thing of the past some day for such oil rich countries

Challenging times ahead boys for everyone!!

All the best

The first thing I did to mitigate the rising fuel price is buy an Aquamist water meth kit designed to support 700awkw on 98 for my turbo Territory. I'll have the off boost and cruise economy of 98 with the power of E85.

Right now I daily a slightly modified 5 litre VN that gets an average of 14L/100km if I don't floor it. 98 is around $2 at the moment but I still give it hell cos life is too short not to floor it.

But yerp no doubt will be driving an electric car eventually.

The best way to mitigate expensive fuel costs is to drive less. I do less than 10,000kms a year so I do childcare dropoff and pick up in my e85 mustang Lol. I don't even think twice when fuel costs go up as I only fill up once every 3+ weeks. It averages 31L/100km as my average speed is 22kph.

Catch the train, work from home if you can etc etc.
