OK i just need an answer does the dash have to be removed to change the pedal box over? I'm about to do a manual conversion so I'm wondering what challenges I will face and how long I will be without a car lol

yep dash out, it took me and my mate a long time to slide the gearbox onto the motor with just a s**t jack holding the front and blocks of wood and bricks holding the back of the trans and the engine tilted a little bit , it was very hard without having the car really high and better tools, plus it was the first time ive done it, probably be a little quicker next time i do it

you dont have to take the dash out if you buy a clutch pin kit from mal wood. with this setup you can convert the auto pedal box..
