  1. when my type 9 destroyed its lay shaft i rebuilt mine with heavy duty lay gear bearings and changed the gearing to v6 ratios i also sourced some heavy duty synchros for it. my 242bhp 260ft lb supercharged zetec didnt break the new box ! i also fitted the a quaife ATB which is great bit of kit transformed the car.. With v6 ratios and a 3.54 diff the car would pull 65mph in 2nd gear. https://www.bearingkits.co.uk/FORD-GEARBOX-PARTS/FORD-TYPE-9-GEARBOX-PARTS/C1-10-1-0.htm best place i found for type 9 parts
