how much for a manual conversion?

hey guys,

Im brainstorming some mods for my AU2 falcon S, which currently has the standard 4 speed auto in it, I have thought of a few ideas, which i have had priced, but I dont have one for a manual transmission yet (5 speed). Does anybody know roughly how much this would set me back fitted??

cheers

steve

I remember a while ago, street machines did a write up on converting an AU to a 6spd manual. Now im not sure if was orginally a 5spd to start with or auto. I'll see if I can dig up the mag somewhere.....

From what I remember the mal wood conversion to 6speed was about $6000 of which most of that cost was made up be the price of the box.

The best bet would be to wait for a manual AU to come up at a wreckers, although you may be waiting for a while.

I was recently princing up a conversion from local wreckers for my EF and prices were around the $1500 mark exchange.
