If the dude paid someone to do the conversion aswell as supply all parts, then yes 4k sounds like somthing you would get charged. And yes theres no reason why it couldnt be out of a vtll they have the same bellhousing shape, wether it actually is or not is another question. But its a getrag, so theres a good chance it is.

Yeah it all sounds right. Getrag just means its got the hydrolic clutch,which is what commodores changed to in VS series II. Im getting a six speed hopefull early next year and i'll be sticking to the cable clutch set up.
