mad Dam Car (t5 conversion problems)

After starting this T5 conversion on Friday problems that have come up are:
Wiring for the amp & driving lights going through the cluch cable hole, need to relocate.
The brand new clutch I brought is the one from the xf not ea, Stupid sales person gave me the wrong one.
Now after all that just to top it all off the cross member for the t5 is not the same as the one off the 3spd like the wreaker told me, utter and complete useless sod.

So now the whole thing only about an hour from being completed & I am without the cross member. Now it all has to wait until Tuesday so I can get a one.

Well at least I now wont have to spend Easter under the car.

Re: Dam Car (t5 conversion problems)

Well I got the cluch replaced, and just waiting on the cross member. The problem with it was that the t5 came out of a xg ute and the cross members are diffrent and I was advised that they were the same from the 3spd to t5. The t5 sits further back than the 3spd so there is about 2 inchs diffrent in the U in the cross member as it needs to come back just that bit more.
Well at the end of this I will know what to tell everyone else what not to do.

Re: Dam Car (t5 conversion problems)

Hmm I was going to say that the crossmember should be the same for manual and auto. I used the 4 spd auto crossmember on the T5 no problem... I had a few cable to relocate as well, and also some of the sunroof wiring went through the clutch cable hole, and I haven't since fixed the wiring for it...

Re: Dam Car (t5 conversion problems)

The 4spd cross member is the same as the t5 one. The 3spd one is just a bit diffrent. Not much in it, but enough to keep my car on stands until tommrow.
