mal wood automotive

i rang these ppl today to ask about auto to a manual conversion on au 4lt 6cyl 99 model
they said they could build me a z spec box based on a ba xr6t and xr8 for about 3760 fitted (i think).. i heard they were a lot cheaper than this or was i wrong????
but they certainly know what they r talking about!!!

Re: mal wood automotive

hmm, I was thinking of the exact same conversion for the exact same car. What does a auto trans rebuild cost?? isn't that ~$2K?

Re: mal wood automotive

In the interests of clarity, I would just like to add that the $3760 figure quoted was for a V8 spec T5"Z" with new input, cluster, third, full synchro and bearing kit. This attracts a $870 premium over a normal I6 box. Std kit is $2890, and includes NEW:pedal setup and pedals, pedal pads, fork insulator, clutch cable, flywheel, flywheel and pressure plate bolts, HD clutch kit, spigot bearing, floor boot, floor boot retainer, console insert and boot, gearstick and knob. Also good S/H clutch fork and bellhousing, and a fully reco AU box as discussed. (EA-EL WILL NOT FIT).

Re: mal wood automotive

Do you know what torque these done up T5Z's will handle, seems fairly expensive for what it is but falcon conversion kits always are expensive anyway. My mate just got a brand new Tremec TKO II with hydraulic tripple plate clutch setup for $4k (not for a Falcon though). Wonder how much conversion work would be needed to fit one of these in an E-series or AU falcon.

Re: mal wood automotive

IT'S Performance, have manual conversions going for $1750, fitted. Although these are second hand parts and use AU T5 boxes. For new parts/gear, they said around the 2-3.5 mark.
