Lol Jarrod that freakin avatar you got makes me hear everthing you say sarcastically.

But anyway. I thought the zf5 was only an option on gassers, but the zf6 came behind all the PSD's? And If the zf5 would work behind the e99, what would stop it from working behind the 99.5+ 7.3 PSD's?

cause of the awsome lower gear that the zf6 had made it badazz enough to drop the zf5. and the 6spd was better overall. was updated and stuff that the 5spds had issues with.

transistion year that is.
