Yeah the manual will bolt straight on, assuming that you know what you are doing ;). I helped a mate with an EF motor conversion in his EA. The things you need to worry about (because I have also done manual conversions) are 1, the computer, you have to bridge out the neutral start switch so that it starts. Secondly you have to get the whole pedal box and pull the dash out to install it.

EAs are a weaker box with a shorter first gear I think.
Still, beats auto.

Care to elaborate on this ?

I've owned 3 EA's an EBII and and EF XR, the EA's have been the pic of the bunch reliability wise. I hate it when people just bag out EA's for no reason.

i have read this before, is it actually true or are they just not as good cause they don't have the same synchro's as later boxes?

The only possible reason, is because the EA box is a couple years older and therefore has had more km's put on them??

As far as i know they are just as durable as the EBII onwards boxes.....

And why's that?


The link posted by snap0964 discusses why, but there have been many debates on FM.
Also if my local wrecker's anything to go by then I'm not the only one here who thinks that.
