one thing to watch out for in the manuals in that series is the pedal assembly, if you have too heave a clutch the pedal assembly breaks over time and is quite a large job to replace. Other than that I had an EF XR8 manual it was the best car for driveability could throw it into any thing

If you want a V8 manual, then try and find a EL2 XR8 otherwise you will find it really difficult to sort out the issues of a conversion ECU wise. Without the manual spec ECU, it will be a real mission to locate a ECU as they are as rare as hens teeth.

darren at ftg auto salvage has a au1 xr8 that would be a great start, it's got the better engine, and would be a nice drive. i'd have a look.
