He said it's out of an EL but not sure how many KM's, i'm assuming its reconditioned.

Fair enough, well i'm assuming they would know if they can use an EL box in an EB. Fairly keen on getting it done might ring up the next couple of days.

lol no worries.

Can anyone tell me how easy the T5's are to drive, I don't have a whole lot of manual experience so just wondering if it's much different to a corolla for example like the feel of the clutch etc. I've got plenty of experience with the EB but just want to know how hard it will be getting used to the T5.
cheers

it wont run as well as well a manual ecu might just rev a bit higher but it will still be fine to use until you find a manual ecu just keep an eye out for a manual ecu

Took it down there this morning, keeping my auto box just in case... Should take 2 days, I can't wait, especially since I'm driving my sister's 89 Auto pulsar hatch in sky blue in the meantime.

Hey guys got the 5spd today, so far definitely recommend Olympic motor wreckers. Dropped the car off monday morning at 9am, they called me at 12:30 today (tuesday) and said it was ready. The price was 1250 drive away, and they let me keep the old 4speed. Clutch took a little getting used to but now she goes off like a cut snake.

Cheers guys for the help and recommendations.

In qld you just need qld transport to note it as a transmission change, as long as it was an option on that series.
