Re: Skyline Manual conversion

Try, several people have converted Auto to Man themselves.

http://www.r31skylineclub.com/

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.
