6 Speed conversion.

I think this is the right place.
A while back i found a website for a place in Perth that does six speed conversions for any car. Their company car was a ser3 AU supercharged XR6 with [6SPEED] plates (IIRC).
I can no longer find the site, and I was telling my mate about them and he wants to look into it.
If anyone has seen this site, could you please post up the link, cos I'm desperate!

Thanks guys & gals,
Jas.

Re: 6 Speed conversion.

What car has he got? What engine? What Gearbox now?

If you're not driving a manual you're really just steering.

Re: 6 Speed conversion.

True? Wonder what a kit would cost? Need pedal box, bellhousing, clutch, box and tailshaft(?) and are they cable or hydro? Would also need a manual computer I'd guess, otherwise you'd be throwing out fault codes all the time.
