Hey guys and girls

The time may be fast approaching that i need to revert my baby back to stock and sell her on. So, considering i want to hold onto my reco'd T5, can you all help me out with a shopping list of things i'd need to convert an EF II GLi with T5 to an auto box from an EL Futura?

box, convertor, flywheel, pedalbox, computer?

and depending on who you went about the computer, might need to rewire the solonoid plug back up.

oh good point, was this car once an auto or always a manual, as this will change what is needed, such as radiator.

Don't you mean always been a manual? Haha how many have you had Ben?

Actually i'm not sure guys. It's been manual as long as i've had it, but it could have been a conversion. The radiator i've got keeps everything ice cool, and is a twin fan setup, if that helps.

Everything LOOKS the same. The auto ones had a line for the transmission oil, and Auto's that had the factory tow bar also had an additional transmission cooler, that sat in front of the radiator, iirc.
