Hello everyone, 15 thousand kilometres ago i had Peter (Clydetj) install an XR6 T5 manual into my car with a near new Exedy clutch that had only seen light work in his daily, now i am selling my car, i am looking to reinstall the auto so i can sell the car more easily.

Im looking for someone that has an automatic with ~200,000km's and wants to convert to a manual for a total cost of $800 fitted, in which place i will have their auto fitted into my car, hence subsidising the total cost.

The whole package, everything that is needed is included:
Shift boot, BA XR6 gear knob
Minus ECU - The auto ECU will run the manual with a resistor mod, a swap can be made for mine (if compatible).
Pedals and a brand new pedal pin
Near new Exedy clutch thats seen 6 mths gentle work, quite firm, very driveable!
Tail shaft
Cable brackets bolts etc.
Box is smooth as silk with no noises.


So a T5 manual, fitted for $800!
The work will be done by Peter at his professional workshop in Geelong.

Note:
This is not a backyard swapover, this is a quality t5 manual and clutch kit that is as good as described, installed by a qualified mechanic.

So for $800 you are getting:
Drive in (auto), spend the day in Geelong, drive out (manual).
Thanks

Hey mate, the kit is for the E series falcons, EF's and EL's only to be specific.
If you are interested, let me know, i am contacting a mechanic at the moment and arranging a cash price, this is how i have made such a low price, although i havent actually gotten a price yet, i am going off old prices he charged me 5 months ago.

Let me know mate
Matt

it might sound dumb, but is it possible to drive your car before and you can drive mine, just so we can both see what nick the boxes are in??? also try and find out the exact price for the FULL swap.
cheers mate

Yeah you can test drive my car thats fine.

The total cost to you is only $800.. Final!
Not a cent more, its a swap and go!

From your message:
You will not lose one bit of power, you WILL gain 10-15rwkw's, a whole lot of throttle response and alot better handling, cornering is just a breeze!

Thanks mate
Matt

Sorry mate, very difficult to organise a mechanic at the same price, i am only able to get this price in Geelong by Peter, who i have had work done by before.

If you want a quality installation, its worth the drive for the day, you could stay a night and drive back afterwards. Only 704kilometres.

Makes an amazing difference to your ride :)
Matt

Also, if anyone here wants to trade up to a set of these wheels:

http://customwheeltyre.com/gallery/v/wh ... 1.jpg.html

they are coming up for sale also.
They are AU mags and i have a set of $400 engineered wheel spacers that the previous owner of my car had installed.

They look awesome on a lowered falcon
