true that the clutch pedal is welded onto the pedal box so it would be easier to replace whole box

You can use your auto pedal box. You will need to cut the brake pedal and get a malwood pin kit for the clutch pedal. The newly revised malwood pin kit should come with a reinforced plate to help reinforce the auto pedal box.

In saying that, reinforcing a manual pedal box with some extra metal and welding skills would end up looking much more professional and even work out better then a malwood pin set up...

phong =P~

EDIT: Hahaha at Jared being slow :P

You can get a Mal Wood clutch pin that bolts into the auto pedal box.

edit: Phong beat me!

as phongus said that would be the easiest way..

otherwise you will need to remove the whole dash to remove the pedal box to swap it over

good on you mate :D. Tis a bit of a b**ch to get the pedal box in...especially when you're on your own and try to heave the whole dash back.
