Apart from

*Gearbox - I assume ordinary T5?
*Clutch - Inc new clutch kit
* Manual ECU (EF-L XR8?)
* Manual Pedal Box - and clutch pedal

Is there anything else that I need for a manual conversion for the EF Ghia?

Also how much would you expect to pay someone (Rough indication) to do this, I have no time - and no equipment anyway...

Thanks..

Manual gearbox loom
V8 T5, 6's are too short.
V8 T5 bellhousing
V8 Flywheel
spigot bearing
floor boot/bracket
shifter
Shifter boot/surround
ECU or J3 chip, J3 chip is much easier, works the same and cheap.

Depends on hourly rate, over here expect to pay someone $60 hour, 4+ hours work....

It's easy enough to do it your self, all you need is a torque wrench, spanners/uni joints and a jack/axle stands.

You can get a bellhousing to adapt i6 transmissions to a v8.

There is no difference in the boxes except ratios, except for the T series AU's and maybe AU xr8's and GT/Sprints (not 100%) which got t5z boxes.

Yeah thats a good point, make sure you get an E series box, otherwise you will have to do what i did and cut holes in your floor, new sandwich plate and shorten your driveshaft. As i put in an AU T5Z (by accident). Castlemaine Rod Shop (CRS, www.rodshop.com) do a bellhousing for the i6 box to V8 block, but i assume that moving the 6 box forward to suit the V8 would also make a difference to the shifter hole in the cabin.....opposite of the AU boxes.
