Fully manualised auto!

Hey, i was wondering how people actually go about fully manualising auto's. Like, what actually needs to be done to make it fully manual..is it just more gates or is there something else involved. I think that this is a good idea, i know it can be done on mechanical autos, but what about the BTR85LE autos?

Any info would be apprecieated :)

Re: Fully manualised auto!

That sounds pretty cool hey. I wonder if a manualised auto would be as responsive as a manual vehicle. For $1500, that would respresent good value if it performs as well as a manual.

Re: Fully manualised auto!

Low, its just basically that the trans stayes locked in whichever gear you have it selected on the "PRND321" scale, its similar to just using that normally, except it will not drop down gears, you have to make it drop down yourself.

Think of a manual without the clutch or H pattern

I've just had a C4 rebuilt and made full manual. With a few extra billet items as I'd twisted a few things in the old C4.

Cost was $1050 ex GST, $1155 with GST.

Re: Fully manualised auto!

I dont think it would perform quite as good as a manual, for the reason that you would still loose power through the stall convertor, although the chages should in theory be just as good, if not faster.

anyone know if this kit can be ordered from interstate and sent down, then fitted here?
