Well im new to this forum and dont really know where to post this.

So here goes.

Ive got a 94 EF Futura. So far ive gotten Sports Exhaust, 17 inch tickford Mags, Window's Tinted, Lowered.

im looking to upgrade it from an auto to a manual. Im wondering if anyone knows of a good location in NSW to go to for the transfer. Im also looking to either turbo or supercharge it or maybe just work the engine. Im gonna be on a $5000 to $15000 budget.

thanks in advance for any feedback.

depends where you get your T5. There are some conversion kits here on the forums every now and then for 800-1500. Ebay there are a few in NSW.

Get a super charger. Expect to pay 7k for a stage 3. 5.5 for a stage one. Cant remember the comp mantal f**k blank.

There is heaps of info in the stickies at the top of the 6 cylinder workshop. Have a browse through there and you'll get plenty of ideas.

Hey Mate,

Don't forget the restrictions on P platers when modding buddy. Pretty sure it will be illegal for you to drive ur car if it's turboed or blown...


Use the 15,000 for a deposit on a house mate... lol.... :P

Ive already got a house :lol: My Parents brought a new place and im paying off the old house.

and i got my P's before July last year so i dont have that Y Condition. So i can drive Turbo's,V8's, etc.

Anyone know of a rough price if i got the following parts.

Cam
Head Work
Extractors
Manuel Gearbox
Super Charger


Just a rough price would be good. like an estimate. doesnt have to be spot on.

Do that. Get in nice and early (like I did :wink: ) and you could very well be looking at being able to afford something REALLY special later on down the track.

You really do only need about 5K to get your Falcon to hammer hard. Since you already have the zorst, why not go for a set of replacement headers, hi flow cat and a decent cam? Do this and there will be plenty of change from 5K for a T5 conversion...

Get it right, and there's 150+rwkw to be had :D
