have a look around in the For Sale section and on prob in the Ferntree Gully Salvage section - a complete conversion kit is usually around $1000-1500 and a fully rebuilt T5 will set you back about $1500 on its own on an exchange basis (cash + your stock one)

You could probably do the conversion for as little as $600-800 if you got a good price on the box and sources the extra bits for cheap. Not hard to do the actual conversion either, 3 weekends TOPS.

I have an EB conversion for sale for $500.

You need to get a Mal Wood pin for $100 and this lets you change the pedal box to suit a manual without removing the dash. The EB pedal box doesnt fit nless you slot 1 of the holes and taking the dash out sucks anyway.

you need the mal wood pin regardless of e series box you use if you don't want to pull out the dash and change over pedal box.

All it does is allow you to run a clutch pedal in an auto pedal box (and is well worth the money as pulling out the dash to change the pedal box is a b**ch)
