Help - EF 6 Converting to Manual

Hey guys
I've just ordered and paid for all the bits needed to convert my EF 6 cyl auto to manual.
I'm going to get a mechanic to convert it for me, could anyone please tell me SIMPLY how to convert (step by step). So I can print it off and show him if he needs to know.
Also, how much should this cost me in labour?, I'm guessing $800?.
Cheers Guys
Mason.

mongrelEB wrote up a complete details on how to convert.

$800 would be a complete sting job I'd imagine.

Re: Help - EF 6 Converting to Manual

1: remove auto+flexplate

2: remove dash+ swap the gearshift surround etc

3: replace pedal box

4: run clutch cable through firewall

5: fit flywheel and clutch assembly

6: fit gearbox and check oil

7: refit dash

thats pretty much it i imagine - i dont know anything about the electrical side of things though.

Re: Help - EF 6 Converting to Manual

Hey mate.
I paid $1,100 for a complete manual conversion kit for my EF 6cyl.
And it looks like the labour to fit everything is going to cost me close to $1,000.
It should be getting fitted within the next couple of weeks.

Re: Help - EF 6 Converting to Manual

I've heard Malwood sell a bolt for the clutch pedal pivot so u don't need to swap pedal boxes.

Traction sux.

Re: Help - EF 6 Converting to Manual

I'm thinking of doing exactly the same thing for my EF Futura, either that or a 3.9 diff or may be both :)

Where did you get all the bits? I think i can do the conversion myself as I changed a few gearboxes on my XF and EB.

Did you get the T5 or the Supra Turbo ? I think i can pick up the Supra Turbo complete set for under 2k, still under 2k but I'll be doing all the labour and the toyota box has a much shorter,precise,smooth feel
