Hey, i was just wondering how hard it is to convert a XC that is column shift to a standard floor shifter. Do i need another Gearbox or just a new shifter ? Thanks

auto or manual?

both: either replace the column or cut the shifter handle off and disconnect the linkages on the engine bay end of the column

auto: swap the tag the shifter linkage clips onto on the box from up to down (or vice-versa, cant remember) cut the hole in the floor, and fit the hump (not the whole tunnel, just the bit the shifter sits on) and the shifter, hook up the linkages, make sure the selector picks the right gears and away ya go!

manual:as above, but first try finding a speco 3 speed floor shift kit..... they're pretty rare though

It is a manual. Could it be easyer to do a T-5 conversion ? How much would i be looking at if i was to do something like that or would i be better off getting an old 4 speed manual (Floor Shift) and puting that in ?
