sounds interesting i hope u dont run into any problems. keep in mind tho converted tranny's in cars depreciate the value more, as it is non genuine.

i bought an ef2 futura that came manual. bloody rare though

good luck with it.

And you can tell they are not originally manual how? Not everyone has access to the codes on the compliance plates.

thanks guys, pick up the parts this friday and only have a few days to have it up and running before the qld dyno day at bob romano's on 9th december :twisted:

180rwhp with dead auto and hitting speed limiter with 3.23 diff gears,

now with 5 speed and 3.45 diff gears should be interesting :twisted:
