Manual Conversion Q's

Ive got a 95 EF Fairmont with the factory auto, and Im looking to do a T5 manual conversion. My concern is will fitting a XR6 manual ECU or standard falcon manual ECU have any effect on my climate control and cruise control as some of the XRs and falcons didnt come out with these options. I would like to hear from any one who has done this conversiond in any E series Fairmont/Fairlane ghia as Im sure they would be fairly similar to what Im looking at.


Just another bullshit oppinion
FOR SALE
BW 25 spline LSD hemisphere to suit pre 88 falcons. Will ship anywhere in aus. Open to offers, PM me for details.

Re: Manual Conversion Q's

no, however i found bridging the neutral switch on the auto is easier and saves a lot of hassle
