Re: Skyline Manual conversion

Try, several people have converted Auto to Man themselves.

Things you might look at changing, transmission tunnel and cross member if its series III, flywheel, peddles, etc. Its a fairly big job. Of course a manual RB engined car is so much more fun.

The aussie R31 Skylines do use the Rb30E engine, which is a great engine.
