Cheap manual cnversion ( Brisbane )

hey guys, I remember reading a while back about a mob in the brissy area who do cheap manual conversions, I cannot for the life of me find the thread, so I was wondering if anyone knew who it was, I think he did them for $300-$400, thanks for any help!

A place gets all the stuff for you preety much does everything and its $1500. I went to a wrecking yard they will give me everything i need for a conversion for $1,000 and then they want my old 4spd gear box back. Costs way to much, you could install it yourself easy enuf take like 1-2 days easy.

Yeah what he said
An unlicensed manual EA costs me between $400-$800 depending on condition and luck I got the donor car for my conversion for $700 and it now owes me $30 after selling off the motor and mags.
Time taken - about 2 days; I knew what I was doing so it may take you a bit longer, well worth DIY I reckon.
