Re: 5 or 6 speed conversion for an xe with a 302 clevo
I picked up a v.g.c. ED XR8 T5 box and CRS bellhousing for $900 private sale, than had to buy clutch, master/slave cylinders, etc. seperate and installed myself.
I think wreckers were quoting $2200-2500 for full conversion V8 T5's.
If you could get one cheap enough, i'd be interested if a Holden Gen 3 6 speed could be made to bolt up, but probably to much hassle.
Good thing about a Ford box is the insurance companies won't complain, so keep that in mind!!!
Fuel economy changed from 20L to 15L per 100km on LPG. well worth it long term.
