well hopefully soon ill be converting my auto into a manual ,,, yay
this is all being done on a relatively small budget

but the donor car was a hefty $1500 for a complete track car with 100,000 on the clock
it just happens to be in auckland haha

thankfully i have a friend ( insert name here) n the 300zx page who has removed the gbox and parts for me and is willing to travel down here for petrol $$
considering he gets the rest of the car to sell he should do ok and ill get my manual installed Smile and some emission crap removed


as far as i can see i wont need a cert but worse case ill get one

the shift knob and boot were missing
i hope to have all this done by the charity cruise, so untill then no drinking no buying xbox games etc haha

images of the stuff i have already bought
donor car with 100,odd kms


boot

rear main seal

spigot bush

and shift knob


i can get a better boot / knob in future
and it wont be hard to make a frame to install the shift boot




still need to source gbox oil ,, probably from total oil

a driveshaft centre bearing, ($100)
and a clutch ,, so far i can get a hd clutch kit from repco for $300 plus gst plus freight
seems good enough for my 240,000 kms non turbo

Cool Smile

Will have to check out the work in November/December when I get back over.

At least one of mine will be running... or at least close to being certified!

What ECU are you going to use?
I have a auto engine with a manual gearbox, currently running with the standard ECU from the manual donor car.
Have mostly standard gear, tho with slightly over sized turbos.
