Cartman you should post this around and see if you can get someone who wants to swap to a manual to swap the gear with you so you each get all the bits and pieces right. You both may get a good deal out of it.
I would certainly do that if I didnt have the other car sitting here doing nothing and the T5 did not already have a home.
I looked at the 3speed to 4 speed auto conversion and that doesnt look that bad (just fiddly), just wondering if it is like the older (<XF) falcons and simply a case of plug in the extra wiring, throw the computer in on the EB. Either way I dont mind, just would like to have a bit of an idea before I start
I was actually considering using the ECU in the ED (hence the reason I was considering either adding or disabling smartlock), but considering the price of an EB1 auto ECU it is hardly worth the extra effort :)
Integrated wiring to my exisiting ECU, for the TPS, speed shaft sensor, the speedo sensor came from behind the dash, that was the extent of the integration, otherwise in my case, I had to also re-pin the plug (oblong one) from the transmission to match up with my wiring harness and connect 2 wires together on existing harness for neutral safety etc, all works well, I am typing up all my notes on wires, pin number, colour and function so will have that avaliable hopefully can be hosted on eafalcon.com or similar for all to share :0).
I did put something here, but it vanshied, I think
