i got a EF Manual Conversion kit including the manual ECU for $770, plus $700 labor to install...
i would've attempted it myself except the lack of time...had my dads car for 1 week, would've taken me longer than that to install it and to find people to assist me. all up took 2 days (put in on the Monday, get it back the Tuesday arvo!) it was one of the best mods ever! extremely happy with it!

I notice a few of you guys live in qld and brisbane. Where did you get your manual conversions?? If you don't want to display names please
p-m me or email ab_385@hotmail.com. Everywherre I looked it was going to cost me around $3000 dollars so I had all but given up on the idea.
