Manual conversion for AU

Has anyone done a manual conversion for an AU?
or looked into doing it?
I would like to find out costs, also possibly using a supra box instead of the T5

Shouldn't be that hard to do, I reckon your biggest problem would be finding a manual computer.

I'd go the t5.

Are you running a v8 or a 6?

Are you able to do most the conversion yourself or are you after a labour quote as well?

not meaning to hijack your thread ir33t but im sure the info will help you aswell

EBXR im running a 6 and a labour quote would be good aswell, if labour is too much id do it myself
would be nice just to hand them the car and pick it up done if you know what i mean

do you have someone you can recommend in sydney?
