Re: ef 5ltr conversion
Just finished doing my V8 wagon. Hardest bit for me was taking out the old pedal box and putting in the new one. You and one of your mates can pull out the auto in 2 hours. Need the basics like flywheel, clutch, spigot bearing, clutch cable and depending on what box you wanna fit a gearbox+bellhousing. Trick your ECU too or just get a manual one.
Got my gearbox and pedal box plus console boot for gearstick for $750. Modifications to the gearbox cost me $250, flywheel cost me $450 and bellhousing and clutch fork cost me $500. Clutch cable cost me $78 and the clutch (GT and sprint) cost me $360. Resistors for the ECU cost me $1.10. Gearbox oil cost $20. New gear knob cost me $28. Not cheap but well worth it. Better acceleration, better fuel economy and vastly more responsive.
