re

I went to the repco place accross the street from the caboolture transport at bribe island. The guy was there doing a EBS conversion when i came in he said 1500-1600. I sort of want to do it to a EB for the 4L head option but prefer the EA. I rang a wrecker just about half and hour ago they said all the parts needed to go from manual>4sp Auto is $1000. So im thinking of trying ot sell my auto in the paper the hole lot its in perfect condtion for $800 (dunno if ill get close to it?). If i can sell it then gonna do the manual conversion.
