Swapping gearboxes - suggestions please!
I have 2 cars at the moment and i want to change over the gearboxes from each car. There is a EB wagon with a 4spd auto and an EA wagon with a 5spd manual. I want to swap these boxes over and have both cars running. I want opinions on how i can do this cheaply. Before anyone suggests doing it myself, ive decided not to attempt this. I dont have the tools or the time to do the job myself and ive never removed/installed a gearbox before. What should i do?? Take both cars into a workshop and have em do the complete swap? I can see this costing big biccies!! Or i was thinking i should remove the T5 from the ea and do the pedal box in the EB then just take the EB and T5 to the workshop and have it fitted... then fit the auto to the ea when ive got more $$$. Anyone got any idea's here??? Suggestions on where to take it in Brisbane? How much it would set me back?
