Yes, the 016's are all the same except for ratios. There are certain 016's which have much better ratios than others. The one I have is coded AAZ which is a pretty good ratio set.
Yes, it's a beefy transaxle, particularly with an LSD installed. My 331 SBF has about 400 hp and 400 tq. It should be fine so long as there's no drop clutch burn out starts.
Yes, selector shaft is on the left. I have a shifter mechanism from a GT40 replica which uses cable shift so I'll have to run cables to the left of the 016. Shouldn't be too tough.
I'll be using 930 porsche CVs and modified axles - should be plenty tough enough. The 930 CV's have a good range of useable motion.
I'll keep things posted here as the project moves forward
