AU 5spd conversion questions

hey guys
i got an au series 1 falcon 6cyl and im growing tired of the auto gearbox im finding it very boring. Iv also been told my car will go a lot harder with a manual box in it.
just wondering whether any of u out there have converted a au from an auto to a manual???????How should i go about this should i buy a box from a wrecker or just get a place to supply and fit the whole thing??????Anyone know of any places in brisbane that i should go to that would do a good job.

AU series 1 falcon :- Full T3 TS50 kit, extractors, 2.5inch exhaust, custom Cold Air Induction, 18inch mags, more still to come!!!
114.2 rwkw just not enough though

Re: AU 5spd conversion questions

Small's Wreckers out at Redcliffe quite often have complete setups out of XR's, etc. Way to go, as everything you need is there, including manual ECU. I'm sure they'll do a trade for your old stuff - probably won't give you fair market value for it, but is quicker and easier.
