The Pedal boxes look the same as the 6cyl variants, however mine had what looked to be XR8 written on it from the factory. Dellow Automotive in NSW also do custom bell housings for supra boxes. If you go the std T5 option you wont need to change your tail shaft. Have fun doing it.......

Im looking to turn my EB Fairmont auto into a 5 speed just havent got the money yet but im going to be doing the work myself with seconed hand parts, worked out that its going to cost me around $600 DYS or i could buy a old Falcon EA for the Ratio and swap the Whole convertion and sell it again

thats just a few os my idea's of what im thinking of doing

prob is that the 6cyl boxes are different to the 8's so you cant just find a cheap 8 with a T5. The convo kit for an 8 is approx $2000-2500, so if you find one cheaper than this, sell your kids to buy it
