I'd assume by him saying, "Goes so much harder" It does.

You make it look easy mate, well done.

ha i did mine on a hoist 8)

goes heaps better than the ole slush box dont it.

im surprised you fitted a gearbox with Bomber and you didnt fit a short shifter to it while it was outa the car.

the conversion isnt that hard, esp if you do some good preperation, have all wiring done etc.

mines not and the ecu im getting is, might pay to swap if you have smartlock cos maybe thats why the car wont start with that ecu in it?
