All they had is slightly stiffer front springs.
Brakes are common to all E-Series, minus EL GT and FBT...

Yes and I sent them an email explaining what they could have done and gave them a whole lot of info and they rang me to talk about it. They said
they would print my email in the next issue "because it had lot's of good info" and well, did you ever read it? They are full of s**t! It seems they will only print stuff if they doesn't make them look like they were wrong or you advertise with them! That box upper article for a stock HO lower article they had recently was a case in point; if they had any idea what they were suggesting they would hang their collective dumb a** heads in shame!
Not to mention articles on my mates cars that have been in there with blatant lies all through the article including "quotes" they had never said!

Price of gearbox conversion is
$400 for the bellhousing
$280 for a decent flywheel, be sure to use late model 50oz version
$300 for a clutch kit
$200-500 for the EA-B box
$180 to have the input shaft lengthened from 167mm to 193mm, this involves cutting & shutting from a single rail shaft.
$50 for clutch cable
you must also either use a manual computer ,or fool the auto ECU into calculating the car is in Drive, then run a seperate starter motor wiring circuit, I haven't yet done my conversion but this was the way I was told how to tackle the job!
apparently you can also use heavy duty bearings to strengthen the box,
and be sure to pick a tight box with little backlash in the gears.
Finally DONT use transmission fluid as per factory, you must use a thin engine oil. diesel oils are the thinnest.
Anyhow ,have fun! its a big job
