Hello, I have a el fairmont and am considering converting it to a 5 speed manual..
Would anyone know what kind of price this would cost me to do?

Thanks, Luke

Check the for sale forum here, and Ebay. Kits probably cost about $600 to $700, wreckers may charge more. Then there is a few new bits that you will most likely need like a clutch kit, spigot bearing, clutch cable & so on.

Cheers

If you're willing to wait long enough, you may get a kit for about $500...or if you're really keen, you can try and buy a wreck with a T5 in it for about $500. If you were to buy a complete kit from a wrecker or a shop (most likely restored at a shop), you'll be looking at about $1200...not installed.

Price will vary depending on what you want. I paid $550 for mine and sold ECU and auto box to break even...costing me nothing to do the conversion.

I bought a wreck from the auctions to do my conversion, cost me $1200 up front, but then I sold off bits off the wreck I didn't need & my old auto box. I come out on top, after a lot of stuffing around.

Cheers
