Ride: EL Fairmont, VFR400 racer

Power: 144 rwkw

Location: Melbourne
VIC, Australia

I paid $550 for a complete conversion out of an EF including the ECU. Sold the ECU and my auto box, ended up costing me $50 bucks for the complete conversion.

Add another say $50 bucks for oil, spigot bearing and other miscellaneous things...

Could potentially cost you less then $200 to get a conversion done. Though this is pricing for what I managed to scrape up (the Asian in me ;)) and doing the work myself.

If you were to go with a mechanic...can cost you between $1200 - $4000 (Mal Wood). I got quoted between $1200 - $1500, supplied and fitted.

In the end I got wiser with the driveline and saved myself a whole lot of money.

Can't be too much harder, all the same principles. I'll tell you when I get back from Indy.. I'll take some photos to make it easier if you need.
