I inquired a couple of times, but they never had any in stock. Compare the weight to make sure it is a good weight savings. I know one would think it should be lighter, but that can vary depending on how they made it and if it requires a liner.

They're advertised steel or titanium liner.

I got my bell from Browell,
BBI-6.1 WR.
They DID NOT recommend an aluminum one
for my application, Stock Eliminator!

Thanks guys.

It really ended up being a no brainer.

The McLeod is 15 pounds lighter, has a larger inspection window, was on the shelf vs. 3/4 week wait and was $100 cheaper.

They currently are shipping with the titanium liner for no extra cost.

I really like that 15 lbs savings. I would also like to know what the fork options are, with Browell there are some great adjustability options.

I bought the McLeod SBF bellhousing for my 93 Mustang stocker, it is really nice, thinking of using it on my CJ project. I am not sure about the fork, the stock mustang cable will work, haven't really looked at what I will need for mechanical linkage.

Nice big window. What trans are you running with that bell? I heard the depth is for a T5 and that is different than a Jerico?
