4spd auto to T5 manual conversion

I have a series 2 Eb v8 with an auto. The auto runs alright but id love to put a manual in. How much would this cost to do? I couldnt do it myself so i would have to take it to a gearbox place. any ideas how much it would cost?

Re: 4spd auto to T5 manual conversion

neeee, I got a kit for 1100$, T5, clutch, fly, pedals, cable....all i had to buy was a rear main seal (nothing wrong with original but while i was at it why not) and spigot bearing. Costed me 120$ and 2 hours to have it put in. I still need an EF Manual eco tho :)

Re: 4spd auto to T5 manual conversion

This is a V8 conversion, which may add more to the cost..

Re: 4spd auto to T5 manual conversion

I paid $1250 for a kit fir a 4.0 that included a recon box. The same place had a T5 for a V8 and they wanted $2500 change over for it! I guess there is more of a demand for the v8 boxes, or they are harder to find.

Re: 4spd auto to T5 manual conversion

Yeah, the v8 boxes are named something different.. like T50D or something.. Only difference is the input shaft, and maybe other minor difference..

Anyway, v8 will be alot to convert.. better off finding a manual car already.

Re: 4spd auto to T5 manual conversion

yea its will cost a bit i think...

My T5 has XR6T and V8 internals and cost me $1720 fitted... But thats not including new pedal box, pedals, clutch, flywheel.. and all the other stuff. Rollin and I converted my car from a auto to a manual on a weekend. i went to get the original box rebuilt and it was dead, so thats how i ended up with the box with the good internals.

Have a search for a guy who has a mod for the auto pedal box to make it a manual pedal box... It will save hours of work putting in a manual pedal box, and also save heaps of $$$

Re: 4spd auto to T5 manual conversion

If you talk to Mal Woods he can give you a price for everything, from 2nd hand to rebuilt to new boxes

Re: 4spd auto to T5 manual conversion

i definitely recommend Mal Wood's work. They especially built my gearbox. i have also had my diff rebuilt there too.

send a PM to WBT56 - he works there...
