Ride: NL Fairlane Ghia V8

Location: Geelong
VIC, Australia

Thinking of swapping and XR8 transmission control unit into the NL cause its programmed more sportily.

Is it a straight swap, and whats involved in doing it. Is it pop riveted in or what. I just assume you just unplug the old one, remove bolts or rivets or whatevers holding it in and swap them over?

Yep it will go straight in.
Have fun undoing the 2 nuts that hold it to the pedal box.
I have one from an EL XR8 on ebay at the moment if you know of anyone thats interested.
