2013 VE SS V Z M6
Hi Fellas...

How much would it cost for an auto to manual conversion for a VY/VZ LS1 (T56). What about VZ L76/L98 and VE L98 (not sure what transmission these cars have)?

Also would the price to purchase a manual for each of these cars be about the same as selling an auto?

Thanks,
Adam

There has been a change of plans... So it's not worth doing an auto to manual conversion?

i think he means manual to auto, he's got engine and trans for sale by the looks of it, but even doing this adamc11 it would be cheaper to by a vy ss with an auto already, can't you bolt an auto up with out having to change the engine? can't you get a belhousing to suit or adaptor plate? (i may be wrong though)

and is there anything you have to do with engine and trans numbers and registration of vehicle with vic roads?

3k just for a new manual box these days. if you paid someone to do it using all new parts prob closer to 6k. You can do it yourself but it is a lot of work.

Ive seen them advertised in the SC magazine for $2500, im wishing i converted mine to manual now.. pretty much spent the same amount on my Auto as i could have converting it with a decent clutch... but its still fun :)

i recently did a m6 to A4 conversion
cost me $300-400 all up including oil and filter

I did a clean swap with someone so only had to pay for the hire of a hoist ,oil and filter and PCM switched to auto
