Re: How difficult is it to convert?

2k all up, $1000 for all the bits plus new clutch plus momo knob, plus factory console, plus leather bit around the shifter plus fitting

You need, ghearbox, bellhousing, clutch, pressure plate, crossmember (maybe not!) shifter, wireing loom (should come with gearbox), flywheel and the bolts :) that's about it imho
